INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cups buttermilk - (see below for substitute)
  • 1 cup all-purpose cream - - or heavy cream
  • 2 packs gelatin
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon shredded lemon rind
  • 1 cup strawberries - - sliced thinly

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Dissolve gelatin in 5 Tbsp water and set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, combine cream, sugar and lemon rind. Place saucepan on low heat and stir until sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Once it starts to simmer, add the gelatin and stir for another minute or until all traces of gelatin are gone.
  • Add the buttermilk and vanilla then remove the pan from heat.
  • <span></span>While the panna cotta is cooling down,prepare the rings. Cover the bottom part of the ring with a plastic wrap and place a rubber band around the ring on top of the plastic wrap to keep it in place. This makes sure that the liquid mixture will not seep out of the rings while they set.
  • Line slices of strawberries on the inner walls of the rings. Place the rings on a flat tray.
  • Once the mixture has cooled completely, pour it slowly onto the rings, filling a third of each rings. Place the tray in the fridge (or freezer) so it could set faster about 3-5 minutes. This is to make sure that the strawberry slices are in place and will not float in the surface once you fill the rest of the rings with the mixture.
  • Once all rings are filled place them again in the fridge/ freezer and let it set. Remove them from the rings by running a warm knife along the sides. Serve chilled.

RECIPE NOTES

This recipe can be divided proportionately if you would rather make lesser servings. For every cup of Buttermilk will make 2 servings. Just double the recipe if you need more.
For the red sauce on top:

1/2 cup cherry syrup (liquid from bottled cherries)
1 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved in 2 teaspoon water.
Place cherry syrup in a small saucepan and bring to simmer. Add the cornstarch mixture and stir continuously until it thickens and color darken,

  1. Hi Bebs,

    This recipe of the panna cotta sounds and looks delicious. Thanks for sharing.

    I was just wondering if you could inform how many grams of gelatine powder you use inthis recipe because here in Australia we buy gelatine powder in cans of 50g instead of packs and I am not sure how many grams your pack has.

    Thanks a lot in advance.
