Panna Cotta with Berries

So, this post is about my sister’s panna cotta.  We had just had the prime rib from the previous post, and I tasked my sister with making a dessert for the evening. Due to an earlier conversation about panna cotta, she chose to try making them herself. Turns out, it is not difficult to make at all.  She got the recipe from the Food Network website and gave it a whirl.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon unflavored powdered gelatin
  • 3 cups whipping cream (I don’t know if there is a difference between regular whipping cream and heavy, but I have only ever seen heavy whipping cream)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • Some berries

Instructions

  • Place the milk in a bowl and sprinkle the gelatin powder over it and let it rest for 5 minutes
  • Pour it into a saucepan and stir over medium heat, dissolving the gelatin, but making sure it doesn’t boil
  • Add the cream, honey, sugar, and salt
  • Stir until the sugar dissolves (~6 min)
  • Pour into glasses, or any container you desire, and let cool
  • Refrigerate to let it set for about 6 hours
  • Garnish with berries

This turned out really well and it was tasty. It is definitely creamy and on the heavier side, but what good desserts aren’t?  We may try experimenting with different flavors of panna cotta in the future, but this is definitely an easy recipe to follow for a delicious dessert.
