April Panna Cotta

Finally real spring has arrived after waiting for long time, now you can imagine how is warm and sunny!!! I love this season a lot ... everywhere is green and full of flowers.

Normally when the weather starts getting warm and hot, I usually make ice-cream or panna cotta, both are our favourites!!



It happened to me to find this blog http://www.lacilieginasullatorta.blogspot.com/2007/05/per-la-panna-cotta-ingredienti-300g-di.html while I was searching for some recipes. It caught my eyes immediately because this is quite similar to the recipe that I normally use but this one has also the strawberry gelee which I have never made before. Want to try this combination!!

I can say that it's so delicious and also a perfect combination between panna cotta & strawberry gelee, I made 4 glasses and my husband & I finished them within one day and i have made it twice already. What do you think about the taste????

Recipe for 4 glasses (Adapted)

300 grams fresh cream

200 grams whole milk

60 grams sugar

1 vanilla stick

3 gelatine sheet (10 grams of gelatine)

Soak the gelatine sheet in cold water for 10-15 minutes. Pour milk, fresh cream, sugar and vanilla stick in a saucepan, stir together and set over medium heat. When it's almost boiled remove from the heat and put the gelatine into the cream, stirring until completely dissolved. Let cool to room temperature, pour into glass and keep in the freezer for 20 minutes. ( I divided the recipe and made them twice because I made 2 levels of panna cotta)

Strawberry Gelee

300 grams strawberry

4 tbs. sugar (depends on how sweet strawberries are)

1 tsp. lemon juice

2 gelatine sheet (7 grams gelatin)

Soak the gelatine sheet in cold water for 10-15 minutes. In small saucepan heat together strawberry puree, sugar and lemon in medium heat till the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat, add the gelatine and stir until completely melted. Let cool to room temperature. Pour in to the glass which has one level of panna cotta. Set in the freezer for 20 minutes.

While the strawberry gelee is set in the freezer, make the second part of panna cotta and when it's cool, pour in the strawberry gelee and set in the fridge for about 2-3 hours.

Thank you la ciliegina sulla torta for the delicious recipe.

Enjoy!!

Om,

The formula you gave me seems to have lot of milk, comapare to the dry. Try 125 ml for the next time, it might help.
