When you over-whip your whipped cream it can get grainy and chunky – not good! Chef Curtis Stone has an easy fix: add a couple tablespoons of heavy cream and use a spatula to gently fold that back in to get a light, creamy texture back.
If you’ve really over-whipped your cream to the point that it has separated into runny liquid and thick solids, there’s no going back. However, there’s an upside -- congratulations, you’ve just made freshly whipped butter! Watch how Curtis finishes the butter -- he strains off the liquid (actually squeezing it with his hands). Just add salt and you have fresh butter to pass with bread at the table.
