In this elegant summertime dessert, fresh strawberries are spooned over buttermilk panna cotta, a custardlike pudding set with gelatin.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In the top of a double boiler (not over heat), sprinkle gelatin over 1 cup buttermilk; let stand to soften, about 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, bring cream and scant 1/2 cup sugar to a boil. Add to gelatin mixture. Place over simmering water; whisk until gelatin dissolves, 5 minutes. Stir in remaining cup buttermilk. Pass mixture through a cheesecloth-lined strainer. Divide among 6 four-ounce ramekins or small bowls on a baking sheet. Cover; refrigerate until set, 4 hours.

  • Meanwhile, sprinkle strawberries with remaining sugar; let stand about 1 hour.

  • Unmold by dipping ramekins briefly into hot water and running tip of a knife around edges; invert onto plates, and serve with strawberries and their juice.

A huge hit every time I serve it. Super easy to prepare, light and rich at the same time.
