Well, if you are just starting out in your homemaking skills or if you are a veteran homemaker of many years, here is something you may never have thought of making yourself. It is fairly easy to make whipped cream too!
Homemade Whipped Cream
1 pint heavy cream (or whipping cream)
For better whipping, freeze heavy cream for no more than 20 minutes. You can freeze the mixing bowl too, if desired.
Take the whipping cream and put it in a mixing bowl. Beat it on high speed until stiff peaks form. However, be careful to not let it go too long for it could turn into butter!
Add powdered sugar to taste. You can also make your own powdered sugar by putting granulated sugar in a blender and blending it at a high speed.
I always use organic products, and it might be hard to find organic powdered sugar, although I did see it somewhere for sale. It is not necessary to use organic products to make whipped cream with though. You can just use the confectionary sugar sold in the stores, if you prefer.
I think you would probably use around 2 tablespoons powdered sugar, but again, it is what your taste buds prefer. You don't need a whole lot to sweeten the whipped cream.
Place on item you are making or put in a bowl or jar and place in the refrigerator. Use when needed. You may also want to cover the whipped cream if you are storing it in the refrigerator. If the whipped cream is not mixed well enough, it will probably turn to liquid again.
