Kids Cook in the Market: Berry Crepes with Whipped Cream

Every summer, mid-June through August at our PSU Market, kids age 7-11 can participate in Kids Cook at the Market, where they learn about the seasonality of food, meet local farmers, and prepare ingredients purchased fresh at the market. Classes include a guided market tour, hands-on instruction and recipes to take home so students can share what they learn with family and friends.

The Kids Cook Season 2016 is generously sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

Honey Vanilla Whipped Cream:

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups cold heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method

  1. Pour the heavy cream into the chilled bowl of an electric stand mixer or into a large chilled mixing bowl. Use the wire whisk attachment on the stand mixer or a hand-held mixer to whip the cream on medium speed until it begins to thicken slightly.
  2. Turn the mixer off and add the honey and vanilla. If necessary, scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl to push the honey into the cream. Whip the cream on medium-high speed until it holds soft peaks. Use right away or place in the fridge to keep cold. Use within 30 minutes.
