PANNA COTTA WITH THYME, LEMON AND BLUEBERRY SAUCE

(Based on Simon Rimmer’s recipe)

For panna cotta:

3 gelatine leaves

250 ml milk

250 ml double cream

1/4 cup sugar

about 3-4 sprigs of thyme

1/2 lemon zest

For blueberry sauce:

1 cup blueberries

1/4 sugar

1 teaspoon lemon juice

water, if needed to thin out the sauce

Method:

  1. Soak the gelatine leaves in a little cold water, set aside until soft.
  2. Place the milk, cream, sugar lemon zest and fresh thyme into a pan and bring to a simmer. Remove the thyme springs and discard.

  3. Squeeze the water out of the gelatine leaves, then add to the pan and take off the heat. Stir until the gelatine has dissolved.

  4. Divide the mixture among four ramekins and leave to cool. Place into the fridge for at least an hour, until set.

  5. To make the sauce place the blueberries and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved and the blueberries are hot and popped. Remove from heat and add in the lemon juice. Add water, if needed, to achieve the proper consistency. Allow to cool completely before topping the panna cotta.
  6. To serve, turn each panna cotta out onto a serving plate. Spoon over the sauce and garnish with more fresh blueberries.

  1. You remind me last time I did panna cotta… 🙂 Arghhh…
    It just did not set!! and was even next morning liquid. Ok, maybe gelatine is old or something. Next attempt. I doubled gelatine quantity… and
    the same result. Just sweet cream 🙂
    xzvnvx…. 🙂

    Now I think, that I have to give myself one more chance and use your recipe.

    • I had difficulties with the granulated gelatine, it either didi set at all, or didi set too much 🙂 However, I found gelatine leaves work well for me. Hope it will for you too. Good luck! 🙂
