Love Like Winter Part V
The Boy's spectacular Strawberry and Vanilla Pana Cotta
Absolutely delicious, rich and not too sweet!
Heat up about 200 ml of thick cream
With this Vanilla Bean paste, you won't need to spend ridiculous amounts of moolah on vanilla pods/beans... this works even better as it's concentrated vanilla essence and beans...and it's only $10 for that jar
Add into the hot cream mixture about 1/3 of a teaspoon (you don't need much)
Start slicing up some strawberries
As we didn't have any jelly mold, the Boy resorted to chinese tea cups
Place a sliced strawberry onto each tea cup base
Pour the vanilla cream mixture onto the Gelatin and stir until it has a smooth consistency
Pour into each tea cup and garnish generously with strawberries
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours
Turn them out onto a serving plate (the Boy had to immerse the bottom half of the cups into hot water as the pana cotta was stuck)
Garnish and serve...!
