Panna Cotta

Makes 5 servings You can flavor panna cotta with many things, including vanilla, cracked coffee beans, lemon zest, cardamom pods, or anything else you fancy. For different flavors simply add the flavoring ingredient to the milk and let infuse for about 30 minutes while it is heating and then strain it out, if necessary. Try substituting honey for part of the sugar for a floral note.

Ingredients

  • 1 quart milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 envelopes gelatin
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 1 pint fresh or frozen fruit, like blackberries, raspberries, clementine segments, or blueberries, defrosted if frozen

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, heat the milk and the sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Add the vanilla to the milk and strain through a fine-mesh sieve.
  2. Sprinkle the gelatin onto the water and let bloom for 10 minutes. Prepare an ice bath. Melt the bloomed gelatin for 20 seconds in the microwave until it is liquid. Whisk the melted gelatin into the milk mixture. Place the mixture over the ice bath and stir until it begins to thicken. Pour into five 5-ounce ramekins and cool in the refrigerator until set, about 1 hour.
  3. Serve with fruit.
