    If you whip mayonnaise too long and ruin it, you can restart with a new yolk and reuse the ruined mayonnaise.

    Is there a similar way to rescue whipped cream that has been whipped too long?

  • I don't think so. In the mayonnaise case, all that has happened is the fat has come out of emulsion and gathered together again, so you can re-emulsify it. In the whipped cream case, you've started to create large fat crystals (butter). I guess technically it might work to heat it up to melt the butter, re-emulsify it into cream and then beat it again, but I don't think it would be worth the effort. You could go ahead and finish churning it into butter and buttermilk if you want to avoid wasting the cream.

  • My wife's chicken cake recipe calls for mayonnaise as one of the batter ingredients. In my opinion, mayonnaise is completely unsuitable for high-temperature processing (as in baking), but I was unable to come up with a substitute for it. So, my question is, what can we put into cake batter instead of mayonnaise? Update: I think mayonnaise is unsuitable for baking because it is an emulsion which separates into its ingredients when heated, emulsifying agents used in a commercial mayo are not particularly healthy, and mayonnaise does not taste any good when it is broken into its components

  • I recently tried to whip warm cream and was surprised to find out that it would not hold air. After some limited research, I have discovered that in order for the fat in cream to form the matrix and hold air it must be cold.

  • I've whipped cream before. I recently bought whipping cream (a brand I'm not familiar with) and placed in the fridge prior to whipping. When I took it out of the box, it was a somewhat solid consistency (not liquid at all). So I tried whipping it and every time, it separates into curdle and liquid before even forming soft peaks. Is the problem because the cream is solidified? instead of a liquified version where the air can encorporate. In this case, should I bring it outside first to see if it will liquify somewhat? Or should I just toss this container and buy my regular heavy cream instead.

  • Through trial and error I've discovered that squeezing a fresh lime over roast parsnips (prior to roasting) make the end product absoutely sublime. The problem however is that the sticky sweet lime juice can make the baking tray hell to clean, or in one pectacular instance of 'over cooking' ruined the non-stick baking tray. Any suggestions to help stop honey glaze and other sweet / sugary dressings from ruining roast dishes? Thanks. P.S. Free free to close if this is off topic :)
