Carbonated Cherries

Carbonated Cherries
Makes about 1 cup

1 (10-oz) jar maraschino cherries
1 Pint whipped cream dispenser
2 C02 soda chargers

Drain cherries and discard juice. With a paring knife, slit each cherry from the bottom to butterfly them. Place cherries in whipped cream dispenser. Charge with two C02 soda chargers, give it a light shake and then let sit refrigerated overnight. When you are ready to serve cherries, release the CO2 by squeezing the handle. It is very important that all the gas is released! Then unscrew the top and remove cherries to a container with a tight-fitting lid. Cherries will stay fizzy for about 15 to 25 minutes. Yum!

Rapid Infusion Using a Whipped Cream Dispenser

High Pressure Rapid Infusion 

A new technique that has recently starting gaining a little more popularity, with many chefs and bartenders  is rapid infusion. Not only is it simple and inexpensive but it is also fast. Using this technique with a whipped cream dispenser captures the fresh raw compounds of solid ingredients and it doesn’t require any heat.  Using what we traditionally called a Whipped Cream Dispenser, isn’t just for whipped cream anymore! The basic process is pretty simple, for example, if you are infusing a cocktail, maybe vodka for instance, or maybe you just want to make your own syrup. Start with whatever liquid you choose inside the dispenser, next you’ll add your ingredients, the ingredients is totally up to you( maybe mint, rosemary, jalapenos..) Charge it with a N2O charger, wait about a minute and give it a good swirl, then vent the gas out of the whipper,  holding

the whipper in the upright position and strain the infused liquid.

With most infusion techniques, the time of infusion depends on the ingredients and the results you are looking for, but usually we recommend one minute as a good place to start. But play around with times, to find your desired result.  Always use warm or room temperature foods and liquids for the most flavor, as cold ingredients will result in a less flavorful, weaker infusion.

Tips for Success

  • Vent Quickly – A rapid release of gas forces the gas to penetrate more quickly. Be sure to capture any liquid that escapes by cupping the nozzle while holding the whipper in the upright position.
  • Precision and Control –  Brands like Ultra Purewhip, SFG and ISI cream chargers contain 8 grams of pure N2O gas, delivering consistent infusions every time.
  • Compact and Economical – Vacuum packers used to create rapid infusions can set you back up to $1,000 and take up a lot of kitchen space. We sell whipped cream dispensers any where from $29 to $115,, they are  affordable and compact enough for any kitchen or bar.
A whipped cream dispenser can be used to create infusions for savory, pastry, and mixology. The technique is universal.


Savory – You can infuse olive oils or vinaigrette’s with herbs that are good for dipping, marinating, salad dressing and cooking.We have heard also from some customers that they put  chicken or beef into their dispenser and put their favorite ingredients and use the rapid infusion technique with this as well, it works, and its fast!
Pastry -Infusing water or milk with flowers, herbs,spices, fruit or vegetables to create bold flavors. Infusing milk products and creating icecream, is a real favorite. (Bacon ice cream anyone?)

Mixology – Mixologists have found using a whipper an essential tool now in every successful bar, making truly unique drinks and flavors.  Start by making a simple syrup recipe with water and sugar, then add your ingredients among other thing…

 

From the busy executive chef downtown to any person interested in experimenting with great flavors  anyone can be trained to use these whippers, and make their own rapid infusions, making their own unique mixtures and flavors.  If you have a infusion you’d like to share with us, we’d love to hear it!

 Carbonated Fruit

Fruit is delicious as it is, but have you tried carbonated fruit? You have always been able to do this using  dry ice, but that is never usually readily available and hard to come by. Carbonated fruit is delicious,

really fun and pretty easy. All you need is a soda siphon or whipped cream dispenser and C02 cartridges. The Co2 cartridges are the same size as the N20 cartridges so there will be no problem using C02 in your whipped cream dispenser —  here are the steps!

Fizzy Fruit

  1. Fill the whip cream dispenser (or siphon) with fruit
  2. Screw on top securly
  3. Charge with one soda charger (two if you have the 1 L whipper)
  4. Leave in for a few hours
  5. Release pressure with valve  – ( don’t forget this step!)
  6. Unscrew top and serve!

It’s a fun way for kids to eat fruit, and also a great decorative added for mixed drinks or garnish on top of desserts!

Older Soda Siphons

Every day we get people calling up asking “Do you have a charger holder that will fit my old soda siphon?”. A lot of people pick up soda siphons at estate sales, garage sales,thrift stores or on Ebay; you can find old soda siphons in many places. It is very important that before you purchase a used soda siphon you make sure it comes with a charger holder, if there is no charger holder, don’t waste your time —  its often very difficult to find old charger holders.  We try very hard to find the right fit to older soda siphons, but the reality is often times the charger holders that will work are unobtainable.  The best luck we have had to find older soda siphon parts is to to check on Ebay. Here are a few brands that we do not have charger holders that will fit for.

We do NOT have parts for:
BOC
Kidde
Soda King
Sparklets
Unknown soda siphons / seltzer bottles with no name.

The only soda siphon charger holders that we carry is the new ISI soda siphon charger holder, which is universal with the New* Classic Glass Soda  Siphon(Note: Not the *Old classic glass soda siphon, in most cases this charger holder it is much to big.). We also have Mosa charger holders that only fit Mosa  soda siphons(also about an inch in diameter).  To see if your siphon will fit this charger holder that we carry the first place to start is measuring  the metal screw  on where you would screw the charger holder.

ISI Soda Siphons


ISI changed their model of there soda siphon in 1996 the soda siphon on the right is the *NEW soda siphon while the soda siphon on the left is the old model. The charger holders are different and the new soda siphon charger holder doesn’t  fit onto the old one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Charger holder on the right is new, where the charger holder on the left(with wings) is old.

Here is a diagram of the old ISI soda siphon model, and the new ISI soda siphon model.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A good indication of how old your ISI soda siphon is, is by looking at the bottom of the siphon, here is the diagram:

 

 

 

Soda siphons are a great tool to make soda water and an environmentally smarter choice.  But its important before you obtain a used siphon you have the parts you need for it to work. If you don’t have a charger holder, your soda siphon will not work.  If you have any questions about different soda siphons or what kind of soda siphon you have feel free to leave a comment or shoot us an email!

 

The Most Creative Kitchen

Possibly the most sought after seat in the nations capital, at the famed chef  José Andrés Mini Bar in Washington DC  – 6 seats at  $120 a plate for 30 courses. He is the master of the cream whipper, using it to make the most unique and unimaginable dishes.  It is a bar almost like a sushi bar where there are 2 chefs for every 2 persons it might be the most experimental kitchen you can find.

If you can nab a seat it’s most definitely worth the experience. Check out this video for Spherical Mojito bites – See if you can figure how to make them yourself!

First here is a video of how to make something Spherical

Brooklyn Egg Cream

The Famous Egg creams from New York, so many new yorkers have such memories of them. Dating back to the 19th century to it’s roots in Brooklyn, which is home to its alleged inventor, candy store owner Louis Auster.  An interesting fact about egg creams is they contain neither egg, nor cream, nor ice cream.  Check out this delicious recipe using one of our soda siphons to make.

Brookyn Egg Cream Recipe

1/2 cup cold whole milk*
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
1/2 cup of carbonated water from soda siphon

* Skim or 1% milk won’t foam as well

**Fox’s U-bet Chocolate Syrup is the famous chocolate syrup used in New York.

Pour milk into a 12 oz. glass. Fill glass with carbonated water from the soda siphon so that the white foam reaches the top of glass. Place spoon in glass. Pour chocolate syrup into glass, taking care to hit the spoon while pouring. Stir drink quickly, mixing the syrup with milk without deflating the foam. Serve immediately.

 

Note: Do not let egg cream sit for longer then 5 min or more; it will go flat.

 

Drink the cool-aid, and all 8 glasses!

Summer Solstice was yesterday, which means if you haven’t already its time to gear up for summer weather. The Mayo Clinic has posted a great article on water intake and how much you should drink – with a diagram of functions of water in the body. Check out the link here, and lets get drinking (water)!

We know how boring that might sound, but it doesn’t have to be! Its always a good idea to have a Classic Glass soda siphon around for a cold and refreshing bubbly drink –  ready when you need it.

Have fun this summer with this special soda making treat. Add your own syrups or just some fresh squeezed lemons and limes.  Its a great alternative to unhealthy soft drinks and limits intakes of additives and sugars, while keeping everyone safely hydrated.

The Classic Glass siphon works with 8 gram C02 cartridges, and is an easier alternative to carrying around soda water bottles.  Make cocktails, sodas and juices, and look totally cool while doing it!
