4th of July Rocket Engine!

We have heard it all when it comes to nitrous oxide, but we have never posted a “recipe” if you will for some rocket fun. After watching his video we  were kind of endeared by his excitement for being a scientist and creating a rocket to go off inside  his parents house. So on this very rare occasion and in the spirit of the fourth of July, we wanted to share it with you.  Remember DO AT YOUR OWN RISK! WEAR SAFETY GEAR AND BE  VERY VERY CAREFUL!

 

We’ll let him explain the process, because frankly it will be a lot more entertaining.

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!

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!

Creamy Horseradish Sauce

Easter in next Sunday, and while we are of course looking forward to the Easter bunny bringing lots of candy and chocolate. What I am looking forward to most is the lamb.  I love Lamb, and we only really have it once a year around Easter. Which is kind of funny to me seeing Jesus is suppose to be the lamb of god and we are eating it, but that’s another story!

The Original Purewhip is Back!

That’s right, the original Purewhip is back in stock, we we’re without it for a short time, but we have gotten the original back and it is available to purchase now!

Purewhip nitrous oxide chargers are our original European made whip cream charger. Purewhip nitrous oxide chargers are manufactured by Europe’s largest and most reputable N20 and C02 production facility located in Hungary.  This is the original brand that changed the industry with its unmatched quality and rock-bottom price!

 

What’s the difference between Ultra-Purewhip and Purewhip?

The only difference between the two is that one is manufactured in Hungary(Purewhip) and one in Austria(ultra purewhip). It is the same quality European gas you have come to expect and trust when you buy any of our products!

Brand Recognition

There’s been a lot of questions recently about brands, where they come from? What’s the difference? What should I buy?

It can become very convoluted in the world of whats good and whats bad in nitrous oxide.  Hopefully this will be a tool of basic brand comparison, and why it matters.

If you haven’t realized yet, nitrous oxide can make or break your whipped cream.  When it comes to taste and texture, the brand you choose matters. There are two major markets of where N20 cartridges come from –  Europe and China(Taiwan).  China has emerged as the largest, among with the Hungarian Company (Liss) and ISI in Austria.

Most nitrous oxide brands you find on the market come from China, why? Because it’s cheap. But as the old saying goes “you get what you pay for” and the saying is more then true when it comes to nitrous oxide. It is highly recommended that you stay with chargers made in Europe as cleanliness standards are proven much better than other countries. There is no agency testing the quality and cleanliness of these chargers.  You need only look at the recent rash of recalls on many other products made in China. With the proliferation of cheap, self-regulated imports, it is important to ask questions! Call your supplier and ask where the brands are coming from! Mostly beware of companies who “hide” where the product is being produced and are not upfront about where it is coming from. If you notice, many brands will not mention where the product is produced but rather state “best and the cleanest N2O chargers on the market” It’s important to ask questions.  Not only are you being ripped off when you purchase cheap nitrous oxide but, so is your whipped cream, as you will notice the difference.

Gas coming out of Europe is widely known as the premiere gas on the market, with the highest ratings. Most importantly most highly sought after in the culinary community. Why? Because its the Purest available, leaving no after taste or residue, nitrous oxide coming out of Europe is always trusted, and is the cleanest available on the market. Coming from the main factory in Vienna, brands like ISI and Ultra Purewhip , you can always guarantee never duds and absolutely no aftertaste. The EU has the strictest standards, among producing countries with there enforceable legal requirement that assure purity for ingestion. You will notice the difference.

Many times people look over the nitrous oxide they buy, but not only is it important for your health but also for your end product.

Stabilizing Whipped Cream

You’ve worked incredibly hard on making the perfect apple pie for that summer BBQ, you’ve taken out your “don’t worry I’m a professional” whipped cream maker and you’ve strategically and with skill and precision  dispensed a well crafted portion of delicious whipped cream on top (to of course impress those critical in laws).  Fifteen minutes later, the sun has taken the best of your once aesthetically delicious dessert and your whipped cream has turned into a blob of cream layered over a pie. We’ve all experienced this at one time or another and the good news is, it can be easily avoidable.

Gelatin is the most common stabilizer out there, a popular brand that comes to mind is Knox which you can find in most to all grocery stores.

Sprinkle a small portion of gelatin powder over a small amount of water, usually 1/2 teaspoon gelatin over 1 tablespoon water for 1 cup cream, 1 teaspoon gelatin and 2 tablespoons water for 2 cups of cream etc..

Warm it in a microwave until the gelatin melts,  once the gelatin has dissolved let it sit until it is fully cool. Put the dissolved gelatin  in the whipped cream canister. Once it is in the canister with the cream and already added ingredients, screw on the head of the whipped cream maker and immediately shake the canister- to mix the ingredients and gelatin in together.  Once the ingredients are well shaken you can then dispense your N20 cartridge into  the canister.  This method will keep your whipped cream firm and thick for much longer.

If your into a more vegetarian approach you can also use, ” Agar Agar” the flavorless, seaweed-based thickener. In recent years it has become quite popular internationally, and most popular in Japan, where it is known as “kanten”.  You can use the same amount of of agar-agar powder, just as you would with recipes calling for gelatin.

Summer Whipped Cream Ideas

Summer solstice is on June 21st  but here in south Florida we are really feeling the heat! It’s time for juicy cocktails, sunny barbecues and tons of fresh fruit, with lots of sweet savory whipped cream on top. Since summer is all about fun, I spent the weekend experimenting with alcohol infused whipped cream, and it was a great success!  Here is a couple of recipes we found to be fun and delicious! Start by adding your standard whipped cream ingredients into the canister:

– 1 pint regular whipping cream

– 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

– 1/4 cup powdered sugar(to taste)

Then add about 1 1/2 tablespoon rum or bourbon – I found that, that was the perfect measurement for my taste, but it might be to strong or to weak for you, so play around with it. It turns out fabulous for fresh fruit, we put cantaloupe, berries, fresh strawberries and watermelon, big hit! We also made an authentic cuban mojito and topped it with mint flavored whipped cream and rum. After the basic whipped cream recipe as written above add 1/4 teaspoon mint extract and 1 tablespoon mint paste made from fresh mint leaves, and 1 tablespoon of rum, or to taste. You could also use chai extract, about 1/2 teaspoon of chai.
