An anti-infammatory, anti-ageing, soothing dessert. And it tastes amazing.
Very quick and easy.
Easy Pineapple Panna Cotta
600 ml double cream
400 ml fresh pineapple juice
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
130g caster sugar
2 ½ tsp gelatin powder
Start by soaking gelatin in cold water (if using powder use 1 part gelatin to two parts water which should be sufficient to allow it to swell – in this case 2 ½ tsp gelatin to 5 tsp water). Whilst the gelatin is soaking, gently heat the cream and dissolve in the sugar. Add the vanilla extract.
Once the gelatin has soaked (it will not feel hard or bitty between your fingers) remove cream from heat and stir in gelatin for a couple of minutes to dissolve. Next stir in the pineapple juice.
Pour into moulds and chill for several hours or overnight to set completely.
Experiment with other fruits and fruit juices. For example, when peaches are in season you can use their flesh and juice. Have fun!
