[MUSIC] I'm Justin Chapple from Food & Wine's test kitchen. Join me as I demonstrate Mad Genius Tips. [MUSIC] There's almost nothing like homemade whipped cream. But the problem is, let's see, it's Thanksgiving or another holiday. The last thing you wanna do is break out another bowl and another whisk. I've got a mad genius tip that's going to teach you to make whipped cream in a jar. I'm starting with a one quart glass jar that I've chilled and to that I'm adding, confectionary sugar, heavy cream and just a touch of vanilla. Go ahead and seal the jar. And now comes the fun part. You get to pretend you're a bartender and you get to shake your cream. [LAUGH] You're gonna wanna turn it upside down, shake it this way, shake it that way. And what you're doing is you're incorporating a ton of air. And that air is whipping the cream. If you're doing it correctly, and you're flexing your abs, you're not only making whipped cream but you're getting your weekly workout. [MUSIC] Okay. So I've been shaking for about three minutes we're gonna check if it's ready. So we're gonna take the top off and what we're looking for is thickened whip cream. Scoop it out. We have this beautiful, delicious, fluffy, homemade whip cream. And at this point you're gonna want to pop in the fridge for about ten minutes just to get it nice and chilled. But because I can't wait, I'm gonna put it right on top of this gorgeous pecan pie, and I'm gonna dig in. There's nothing like home-made whipped cream. Plus Can serve it right out of the jar.
