Lovely couple, the panna cotta and the strawberries! The ingredients has to be fresh and there are fit for all the tastes and desire. Of course in summetime this is a delicious nibble, pudding or dessert! What do you need? Simply, the best! Here we go with the list! for the panna cotta you will need:

  • 1 1/2 cups milk;
  • 1 (.25 ounce) envelope unflavored gelatin;
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream;
  • 1/4 cup white sugar;
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract.

For the dressing those are the ingredients:

  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, quartered,
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract,
  • 1/4 cup sugar,
  • 1/4 cup water.

Now, put the milk into a bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over the milk. The mixture has to sit until the gelatin softens. I takes about 5 minutes.
Mix the cream and 1/4 cup sugar in a saucepan over medium heat.

Stir in the gelatin mixture; cook and stir until the gelatin will dissolve completely. It takes about 3 minutes. Add then the vanilla extract and pour the mixture in abowl, cover and let chill for 4 hours.

Instead, in order to make the strawberry sauce, put together the strawberries with two teaspoons vanilla extract, 1/4 cup sugar and water. Heat the mixture in a saucepan, and in the while you can crush the strawberries, Simmer the sauce until the sugar has absorbed and the sauce has thickened. It takes about 10 minutes; then let it cool.
Remove chilled panna cotta from the refrigerator  before serving, dipping the bottoms of the cups in which you have put it in warm water. This will help loosen the custard. The dessert is almost ready to be put  onto a dessert plate, in order to unmold. With a spoon sprinkle lovely and juicy strawberry sauce over your panna cotta and serve.
