Panna Cotta

This is a simple, tasty, perfect for summer and warm weather type of a dessert. It is quick and easy to make, it just takes a little planning as it needs to be refrigerated for several hours between the making and the consumption.

1 cup whole milk
1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin
3 cups heavy whipping cream
1&1/2 tablespoon sugar
dash of salt
1/2 tsp of vanilla
1/3 cup of honey

In a heavy saucepan, combine the milk and the gelatin and let sit until the gelatin has softened, about four minutes. Put the pan on medium heat and cook, stirring frequently until the gelatin dissolves, about another four minutes. Do not boil the milk. When the gelatin has dissolved, add the cream, sugar, salt, vanilla and honey and continue cook and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and let it sit and cool. Poor the mixture into your desired serving bowls, cover and refrigerate for six to 24 hours. We like to top ours with fresh fruit, such as blackberries, raspberries and strawberries, but go ahead and be creative in topping your panna cotta. Buon Appetito.
