Hi everyone, and welcome to the GialloZafferano kitchen. I’m Sonia and today we’ll be preparing a sweet spoonful known not only throughout Italy but also abroad: Panna Cotta. Let’s look at the ingredients we’ll need
• ¾ cup (150 g) of sugar
• One vanilla pod
• 2 cups (500 ml) of heavy cream
• 3 sheets of gelatine at about this size (0,2 oz-6 g)
Let’s prepare our Panna Cotta.
First of all begin by putting some cold water in a large bowl and completely immerse the gelatine sheets leaving them to soften for about 10 to 15 minutes until they’re completely soft.
I’ve placed the heavy cream into a large pot. Now score the vanilla pod with a knife and add it to the cream along with the sugar. Now mix together and bring the mixture to a slow boil.
Now that the sugar is completely dissolved, remove the vanilla pod and add the softened gelatine. Mix it together until the gelatine has dissolved.
It’s time to pour the Panna Cotta into ramekin moulds and then leave them to rest in the refrigerator for at least 5 to 6 hours. It’s even better to prepare them the night before to chill for the next day.
Our Panna Cotta is ready. To remove the puddings easily, dip the ramekin moulds into hot water for a few seconds before turning the puddings out onto the serving plate. You can dress the Panna Cotta with caramel or with whatever other topping you’d like.
Buon Appetito from Sonia and GialloZafferano and see you next time.
