Vanilla Pannacotta with strawberries

strawberry-vanilla-pannacotta

Here's a perfect little dessert - just the thing after a good dinner. I love how it's all prepared in advance, and it's really quite fail-proof. The only fault I made last time was to NOT make a separate one for Titus - he ended up having ice cream instead, but he liked the pannacotta much more.

Vanilla Pannacotta with strawberries
(printable recipe)
Serves 4

Vanilla pannacotta:
300 ml cream (full-fat)
1 1/2 sheets of gelatine
50 ml homemade vanilla sugar (or regular sugar)
1/2 vanilla bean

Soak the gelatine sheets in cold water for at least five minutes. Meanwhile, bring the cream, sugar and the scraped out vanilla bean to a boil. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Remove the vanilla bean. Add the gelatine, and stir until it's completely dissolved. Pour into small cups or glasses and place in the fridge for at least four hours.

Strawberry topping:
250 g fresh strawberries
1 tbsp white baking syrup (Glucose or corn syrup are probably quite similar to this, honey is nice too)

Mix half of the strawberries with the syrup, using a blender or a stick blender. Cut the rest into small dice, and stir together. Place cold, and when the pannacotta has set, spoon over the topping.

Julie, these are actually old yogurt pots. It's a French yogurt brand, I've only ever seen it in a bakery in Stockholm (Fabrique) but I really wish it was more readily available. I love the little pots!

An easier option is to buy baby food jars!
