- 1.2 litres of cream
- 2 vanilla pods
- 1 lemon (finely zested)
- 3 leaves of gelatine
- 150ml milk
- 250g white chocolate
- 85g icing sugar
- Fresh ripe strawberries
- Pour 900ml of the double cream into a small pot, stir in the vanilla pods and lemon zest. Then simmer until reduced by a quarter. Keep warm.
- Soak the gelatine in the cold milk until soft. Then warm the milk until the gelatine is dissolved. Stir into the reduced cream mixture along with the white chocolate. Pass through a sieve into a bowl and chill over ice until thickened but not set.
- Lightly whip the remaining double cream with the icing sugar. Fold this mixture into the thickened cream and chocolate mixture. Divide between eight cappuccino cups (about 150mls) and leave to set.
- To serve, turn each panna cotta out onto a plate and top with chopped strawberries, which have been lightly crushed with a little icing sugar and drizzled with aged balsamic vinegar.
