Panna Cotta with Berry Sauce

Servings 8

Ingredients

Panna Cotta:

  • 4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • grape seed oil for bowls

Berry Sauce:

  • ½ pound fresh strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
  • 6 ounces fresh raspberries
  • 6 ounces fresh blueberries
  • 6 ounces fresh blackberries
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ cup sugar

Instructions

Berry Sauce:

In a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, place berries, lemon juice and sugar. Cook for about 5-8 minutes, stirring and mashing fruit until the sugar is dissolved and the fruit is soft. If the sauce it too thick, you can add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water. Transfer to a glass jar with lid and refrigerate until ready to use.

Panna Cotta:

Heat the heavy cream and sugar in a saucepan. Once the sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.

Lightly oil eight glasses or small bowls with a neutral-tasting oil.

Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water in a medium-sized bowl and let stand 5 to 10 minutes.

Pour the very warm Panna cotta mixture over the gelatin and stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved.

Divide the Panna cotta mixture into the prepared cups, chill for 2 hours or until firm. Top with sauce right before serving. Enjoy!
