How to Make Panna Cotta Recipe
- 4dl or 1 and a half cups of – heavy cream
- 1dl or half a cup – fresh whole milk
- 120g or 8 tablespoons – sugar
- 1 – vanilla bean
- zest of half a lemon and half an orange
- 8g (0,28oz) – gelatin sheets
- 250g (9oz) – fresh raspberries
- 1 – lemon juice
Soak the gelatine in a bowl with cold water for 10 minutes (1). Meanwhile, pour the cream and milk in a pan (2). Then cut the vanilla bean along its length (3).
Add the vanilla bean (4), 60g (or 4 tablespoons) of sugar (5) and the zest of lemon and orange (6).
Bring slowly to the boiling point (7) then stop the heat and filter the cream through a strainer and a small white towel (8). Now add the gelatin, drained and squeezed (9).
Stir with a whisk so that the gelatin is fully dissolved (10). Take four glasses and moisten with cold water then drain them. Place them in a container where in the center you have put a rolled towel. Lean the glasses so that they remain sloped (this only if you want the panna cotta to solidify sloped) (11). Pour the panna cotta into the glasses. Let cool, then cover with plastic wrap and place them in the refrigerator to cool for at least 6 hours (12).
Keep a few raspberries for decoration and blend the remaining raspberries with 60g (or 4 tablespoons) of sugar and the lemon juice (13). Filter the raspberry sauce (14) and put it in a pan to warm over very low heat until the sugar has dissolved (15).
Put the raspberry sauce in the glasses with panna cotta and garnish with the raspberries before serving.
