Passion Fruit Panna Cotta

Passion Fruit Panna Cotta

I once mentioned how wonderfully amazing panna cotta is. I still think it’s that great. Do you know what’s also great? Passion fruit. It’s totally awesome. It’s no wonder I decided passion fruit and panna cotta should be friends.

Turns out they’re really good friends. You should try it out. You could also try making an orange and passion fruit gelee to go on top, and maybe even throw some coconut shavings into the mix if you feel like it. Just saying.

Ingredients:

For the panna cotta:

  • 9 ripe passion fruit
  • 460ml double cream
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 4 leaves (7g) unflavoured gelatine
  • Juice of half a lemon

For the orange and passion fruit gelee:

  • 8 ripe passion fruit
  • Juice of half a navel orange
  • 3 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 100ml cold water
  • 3 leaves (5g) unflavoured gelatine
  • Dessicated coconut (to garnish)

Method:

For the panna cotta:

Halve the passion fruits and using a small spoon scoop out the seeds and pulp into a saucepan. Add the cream, sugar and lemon juice, mix well and heat gently until almost boiling.

Meanwhile soak the gelatine leaves in just enough water to cover. Once the cream mixture is almost boiling, squeeze the leaves of excess water then add to the cream, stirring continuously until dissolved.

Using a sieve, strain the mixture into a large jug (in order to remove all the pulp and seeds) then pour into glasses. Leave to set in the fridge for around 4 hours.

For the orange and passion fruit gelee:

Halve the passion fruits and scoop out the seeds and pulp into a saucepan along with the orange juice, 100ml of water and sugar and gently bring to the boil.

Meanwhile soak the gelatine leaves in just enough water to cover. Once the fruit mixture is boiling and the sugar has dissolved, squeeze the leaves of excess water and add to the mix, stirring continuously until dissolved.

Strain the mixture into a jug and leave to cool for around 5 minutes. Pour over the top of your set panna cotta, and put back into the fridge to set for around 2 hours.

To garnish that yummy jelly and panna cotta goodness simply sprinkle with coconut. Mmm.

Makes 6 scrumptious panna cotta.
