Panna Cotta w Ground Cherry02

I created this Ground Cherry Coconut Panna Cotta because Panna Cotta is my favorite dessert!

Panna Cotta is an Italian dessert similar to a pudding, actually what it really should be is something between a pudding and a mousse. Light, bouncy, delicate, with a very special creamy but very subtly gelatinous consistency. A good Panna Cotta should make you close your eyes and dream of those big white clouds against an indigo sky! To me it brings back memories of Limone Piemonte, in a very similar way to Proust and his Madleine!

Only one problem here: I do not do dairy anymore….so how to replicate my delicate dream of Panna Cotta?? Well, of course, coconut cream!! So I did a bit of experimenting…(the first version resembled more a bouncy rubber ball than a dessert) and finally assembled the perfect ingredients for a dairy-free sugar free version.

( I was also dying to try my new delicious ground cherries from the garden in some more sophisticated way than stuffing them into my mouth as fast as I can!)

Instructions
  1. Panna Cotta:
  2. Pour ½ cup coconut cream into a medium bowl; sprinkle gelatin over. Let sit until gelatin softens, about 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the rest of the cream, honey, vanilla, in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking until honey dissolves. Remove from heat; cover and let steep for 10 minutes.
  4. Bring cream mixture back to a simmer. Add gelatin mixture and stir until dissolved. Divide among eight ¾-cup cups.(I used small water glasses)
  5. Chill uncovered until panna cotta is set, at least 6 hours.
  6. Using a small sharp knife, cut around edges of each panna cotta. Place a small serving plate atop each cup and invert, allowing panna cotta to settle onto plate.
  7. Puree’
  8. Husk and wash ground cherries, and put in a food processor with the peach without skin.
  9. Blend until smooth.
  10. Spoon puree atop the panna cotta and serve immediately
