If you’re trying to cook more often and want to experiment with something simple, then this dish is for you. Panna cotta is easy to make, can be created with a lot of different ingredients and tastes great. It’s definitely a recipe that is sure to impress anyone you cook it for, even if it’s just for yourself or your kids! Once you’ve mastered the regular recipe try using versatile ingredients to experiment with different flavors. IngredientsDirections 1 tbsp unflavored gelatin powder (found in packets at the grocery store) 1 cup whole milk 3 cups whipping cream 1/3 cup organic honey 1 tbsp. sugar 1 pinch salt This simple recipe starts with you pouring the milk into a bowl. After this, sprinkle the gelatin powder evenly over the surface until it’s covered. DO NOT mix this in; just let it sit for around five minutes so that the gelatin softens up. Next pour the milk and gelatin mixture into a small saucepan and set it to medium heat. Stir this gently until the gelatin is fully dissolved into the milk. You do not want the milk to boil, so keep a close eye on the liquid. You only want the gelatin to dissolve when you do this step. After the gelatin has dissolved into the milk for five minutes, add in the cream, sugar, salt and honey and stir gently. Continue to do this until the sugar and other ingredients have fully dissolved into the liquid. This should take 5 minutes, but can take up to 7. Once everything is dissolved, take the saucepan off of the heat and pour the mixture into six different serving bowls, ramekins or even wine glasses. Let these cool slightly before placing them into the fridge for around 6 hours. Make sure to place something on top of them so air doesn’t affect them, but you don’t have to seal them tightly. Once the panna cotta desserts have had enough time to set, take them out of the fridge and serve right away. They taste great when topped with fresh berries as well as chocolate sauce or even some chopped fresh fruit. Tips: Panna cotta is a very versatile dessert, so you can do a lot of different things with it. Once everything is dissolved, take the saucepan off of the heat and pour the mixture into six different serving bowls, ramekins or even wine glasses. Let these cool slightly before placing them into the fridge for around 6 hours. If you want something with fruit, then try using coconut milk in your recipe. This adds a nice flavor that pairs nicely with tropical chopped fruits on the top. Make sure to give the dessert enough time to set, or else it will be runny and difficult to eat. Do not let the mixture come to a boil while it’s on the stove, as this will cause it to cook too much and not set properly when put in the fridge.
