Tangy Panna Cotta with Fresh Berries

Tangy Panna Cotta with Fresh Berries


Panna cotta:
1 1/2 cups heavy cream, divided
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 1/4 teaspoons gelatin (one .25 ounce envelope)
1 3/4 cups buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional

1 cup sliced strawberries
1 cup blackberries
1 cup raspberries


1. Make panna cotta: In small, microwave-safe bowl, combine 3/4 cup heavy cream and sugar. Sprinkle gelatin over mixture; let stand for 5 minutes. Microwave gelatin mixture on high for 1 minute, at 20 second intervals, until cream is hot and gelatin and sugar are completely dissolved. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine remaining 3/4 cup heavy cream and buttermilk. Pour hot gelatin mixture into cream and buttermilk, whisking constantly. Stir in vanilla, if desired. Divide mixture evenly among six 4-ounce ramekins. Refrigerate until cold and set, about 4-6 hours.

2. Combine berries: Using small offset spatula or knife, loosen panna cotta from side of each ramekin. Invert panna cotta onto dessert plate. Surround panna cotta with 1/2 cup of mixed berries. Repeat with remaining 5 ramekins. (Alternately, decorative mold or even bowl can be used to make single large panna cotta.)

I am getting married 1 week from tomorrow, but felt compelled to tell you about one of your employees. Ann. I have been e-mailing Ann for over 1 month and put a favor order together for my wedding. They arrived and I they looked just like the picture.The main reason I wanted to drop you a note was to commend Ann. From the very first e-mail until my chocolate was received her response time was just wonderful. I heard so many horror stories about dealing with an online company when you have no idea when they will contact you next. I never had any feeling of discomfort. Ann made me feel so at ease and comfortable the whole time...Ann was exceptional and in this day and age that is not common. Her customer service is beyond compared to others. - Fran"Thanks so much for the chocolates that were sent to my mom today!! She called me and said they were absolutely beautiful and VERY delicious!! :) I am very happy with my experience and would recommend your company to anyone. The customer service that you've provided is hard to come by - THANKS SO MUCH!! - Theresa B from
