Panna Cotta

Today I made a rich, silky and decadent Panna Cotta with a side of light, sweet and tangy strawberry compote.

Panna Cotta is a Italian dessert which can be prepared in 15 minutes or less. I have to give you a heads up though. Even though it take 15 minutes to prepare, it will take at least 5 hours to set :)..

I usually make this at night before I go to bed and set in the refrigerator so that it will be ready for me by the time I wake up in the morning. That way I will not peek at it every second to see if it set or not.. Jajajaja..

Try this dessert when you have small gatherings as these can be made ahead of time and will take no time to assemble. I bet for sure this will be the star of the party. Alright, It is Panna Cotta time for me --Ciao :)

Ingredients
1 cup whole milk
1 1/2 tablespoon unflavored powdered gelatin
3 cups whipping cream
1/2 cup honey
3 tablespoon sugar
For Garnish
Small strawberries
Strawberry Compote
Method
Take the milk in a small bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin over. Let stand for 3 to 5 minutes to soften the gelatin. Pour milk mixture into a heavy saucepan and stir over medium heat just until the gelatin dissolves but the milk does not boil, about 5 minutes.
Add the cream, honey, sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat.Pour the milk cream mixture into the custard cups or wine glasses, cover and refrigerate until set, about 5 hours.
I am presenting this two ways.
If you are using custard cups :
To serve, loosen the custards from the cups with a small knife and invert onto dessert plates. Add a spoonful of strawberry compote and add a strawberry on the top.
If you are using wine glasses :
Drizzle the strawberry compote on the top and add a strawberry on top for garnish and serve it.
