This week I decided to make a simple Vanilla Panna Cotta and top it with a fresh strawberry coulis, since it is still strawberry season and I love strawberry anything!
1/2 cup whole Milk
1 1/2 tsp powdered Gelatin
1 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
1/4 cup Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
Coulis or fruit as desired
Place the milk in a heavy saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatin over the surface and let stand for 5 minutes to soften (a.k.a.- bloom) the gelatin.
Stir over medium heat just until the gelatin desolves, but the milk does NOT boil, about 2 minutes.
Divide equally into desired vessels, place a small piece of plastic wrap directly to the surface (to prevent skin). Chill until set (several hours). Remove plastic, serve as desired with or without fruit.The possibilites are limited only to your imagination.
Coulis is a sauce make with fruit puree. I took some strawberry jam that I made a couple of weeks ago along with some fresh strawberries and gave them a whirl in the food processor. This lucious sauce was spooned over the chilled and set panna cotta. Topped with some fresh sliced strawberries and done! That easy and boy oh boy does this make a hit!
I hope you give it a try.
