We have had a blast of hot temperatures recently here in Vermont. I needed to bring a dessert and didn’t look forward to baking and heating up the house with the oven. What’s better on a hot day than ice cream sundaes! In this neck of the woods, the best ice cream around is Wilcox, made in VT. I added to that a locally made hot fudge sauce from Mother Myrick’s, and nuts from our neighbor New Morning Natural Foods. When I thought about whipped cream, beating it with a mixer at the last minute did not sound very appealing. Nor did the spray kind which tastes to me of chemicals. Then I remembered the Creazy Whipped Cream shaker (by Cookut, a French company who wants to encourage cooking at home with efficient utensils). All I did was put heavy cream in the jar, added a bit of sugar, the silicone balls that the maker calls “magical”, and then we shook the jar for about 30 seconds. Delicious, fluffy, all-natural, whipped cream. Yum!
