  • 10 g packet gelatin (or 3 gelatin leaves)
  • 250 ml/8 fl oz. /1 cup milk
  • 250 ml/8 fl oz. /1 cup double/heavy cream

For the strawberry sauce:

  • 2 cups (200 grams/ 7.1 oz.) frozen strawberries – or other berries of your choice

To make the Panna cotta:

  • Pour 75 ml/3 fl oz. /5 tbsps. almost-boiling water into a heatproof bowl, then add the powdered gelatin.

  • Discard the vanilla pod and pour the milk mixture into four 150 ml/ ¼ pint/ 2/3 cup ramekins or small dishes. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour until set.

To make the strawberry sauce:

  • Meanwhile, make the strawberry sauce. Place the fruit into a saucepan with the sugar and orange juice or water.
  • Place over a gentle heat and cook for 5 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved and the fruit is beginning to collapse.
  • Either serve with whole strawberries or blend to form a smooth sauce. If liked, rub through a fine sieve to remove any pips.
  • Serve with the set Panna
