Panna Cotta with Fresh Berries

Total Time:
6 hr 12 min

6 servings

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon unflavored powdered gelatin
  • 3 cups whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 cups assorted fresh berries

Place the milk in a small bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin over. Let stand for 3 to 5 minutes to soften the gelatin. Pour milk mixture into a heavy saucepan and stir over medium heat just until the gelatin dissolves but the milk does not boil, about 5 minutes. Add the cream, honey, sugar, and salt. Stir until the sugar dissolves, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat. Pour into 6 wine glasses so that they are 1/2 full. Cool slightly. Refrigerate until set, at least 6 hours.

Spoon the berries atop the panna cotta and serve.

Made my first panna cotta using this recipe. It turned out just perfect!!! Never thought it would be so easy and fast to make! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My first try at a panna cotta. I looked at the Barefoot Contessa recipe but it seemed a bit more advanced. I followed the recipe exactly except that I added about a teaspoon vanilla while it was on the stove. Tasted amazing!! Fairly sweet so I would definitely stick with the fresh berries versus making a syrup/fruit sauce. I did a strawberry sauce & all that sugar was a bit much. I'll just do plain berries next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I've made panna cotta before with a recipe I found from Epicurious and it was delicious; I didn't think a recipe from Giada can go wrong so I attempted this for Christmas. Followed the recipe to the T and wow, it was probably THE worst panna cotta I've ever had. It tasted like steamed whole milk in gelatin form… Thank goodness I found a supermarket that was open on Christmas day! I found another recipe on Epicurious and made that the day of and it was so yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe for a pot luck at work and it was a big hit.. I garnished with fresh raspberries that I had covered with 1 tbsp. of sugar and let sit for an hour before topping. This recipe made about 18 -2 oz dessert cups perfect size for the event. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made this for my husband and in-laws, who are all Italian Food Snobs, in Italy. And they LOVED it. Its really hard to impress his mother but all she did was keep complimenting me and asked for the recipe. I used raw organic honey and followed the recipe exactly as written. For the berries i just mixed frozen sliced strawberries and blueberries (thawed out so they were juicy) with the same raw honey. Everything was GONE! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank You Giada De Laurentiis for Posting this Panna-Cotta with fresh Berries Dessert.I am a Student at a Local Culinary Program Called Cincinnati Cooks, and on November the 9nth 2013 we put on a 5 course Dinner that day and the evening of the 8th I began putting together the ingredients and finished putting it together on the day of the party and it came out amazing. You could taste all the ingredients equally, the Honey and the Vanilla with the berries was a Great and Tasty Sensation. Everyone LOVED it, I can't wait to make another one of your Delicious Desserts GODBLESS!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used cream top milk for my panna cota and turned out quite well. Although I could not taste the honey I used. I would make this again but with whole milk next time. So I could hopefully taste the honey in it. Although I must say a friend whom had this dessert asked me what I put in it, and I said "honey etc etc etc". He did taste it. Everyone at our little get together liked it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
