      No I don’t Ann…sorry. I’ve been trying to figure out how to make heavy whipping cream for some time and haven’t found a recipe that actually works well.

  2. Darlene Ernst says:

    Do you use the regular paddle beater or the wire whip? Also, how long does this keep in the fridge?

    1. I use the wire whip to make mine and it only lasts about 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator. Thanks for stopping by.
