    So I can't find any butter in the house. I DO have some heavy whipping cream. Do you know you can't make butter out of heavy cream if it has carageenan and other gums? I'm mad.

    So here I am at this new job and I can't whip cream into whip cream! And I'm supposed to know what I'm doing, HA!

    I've never noticed this or even thought about it before because I hadn't ran into it. But the heavy cream (not light cream) they WERE buying (thank-goodness the chef changed for me) apparently didn't have enough fat in it to hold being whipped. To me then it's not heavy cream....?


    Weird

    So one of you can't make butter out of the cream product and the other can't whip it into fluff. You can't win for losing!! :rolleyes:

    I whipped heavy cream into butter once with my Hobart. Of course, it was an accident...:D

    I whipped myself into shape once, but.... that was when I was young and living in a galaxy far, far away. :rolleyes:
