Panna Cotta is something that I am not familiar with.
I don't think I've come across it in my travels, but then again,
I am usually in search of crème brûlée or a good mille-feuille.
That said, this was a lovely dessert - very pretty and quite refreshing.
Unfortunately, when I made it on Sunday I accidentally grabbed a package of
yeast instead of gelatin. I could not understand why it was still not firming
up after 4 plus hours. It wasn't until that evening that I noticed the unused
package of gelatin as I reached into my pantry for something else.
I did a makeover on Monday and was very pleased with the results.
Jim and I both enjoyed this dessert. I prepared two glasses with the mango
pureed base and then used two ramekins for a plain, fruit free version.
Both desserts were delicious.Per Tricia~
We are deep into our first blackberry season at the house and with the
abundance of this fruit I naturally opted out of the mango version of this
dessert. Frankly I was delighted to find a new recipe for using up the
blackberries and this one was utterly delicious. No surprise since it
consists of vanilla bean, cream and sugar among other things.....
Quick and easy, the most challenging part of the preparation was giving
the cream enough time to adequately cool so that it was not melting and
co-mingling with the blackberry base.
My taste testers loved this recipe and it is a keeper.
I also look forward to preparing this for company since guests always seem
to get a kick out of the individual portions created especially for them.
This marks another Tuesday recipe testing as we cook along with the "Tuesdays with Dorie" online group.
