Panna cotta is an Italian dessert made with sweetened cream thickened with gelatin and then set in molds. Its an easy dessert to make at home and will impress the whole family. This version uses honey and saffron as flavoring but pretty much anything can be used.
Makes 8 servings
1 envelope unflavored gelatin (about 1 tablespoon)
2 tablespoons cold water
2 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 cups milk
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup of honey
7 cardamin seeds
2 pinches of saffron
In a small pan over low heat put the water and gelatin in untill disolved. Then over medium heat put all the ingredients into a medium pan and bring to a gentle boil stirring to make sure everything is well mixed.
Now pour the gelatin mixture into the cream mixture and whisk. Turn off heat and let sit for 5 min.
Next strain the mixture into a bowl to remove the cardamon seeds and saffron. Now divide the mixture into 8 ramakins and chill for 2 hours untill firm.
To serve dip the ramakins into warm water and turn upside down onto a plate. They should slid out onto the plate. Drizzle a little honey on top and enjoy.
