Rosewater Panna Cotta with Blueberries

December 15, 2010


I was flipping through Donna Hay ~ Dec2010/Jan 2011 magazine, and this Panna Cotta caught my attention...

Reason no 1 ~ I have one (1) blueberry plant growing happily in my backyard. The plant has been very kind.. eventhough it was only a year old... it has given me quite a good yield... It must have been happy and contented in my garden... 
Reason no 2Miss E loves blueberries (and she often say it her 'blubberries'...) and I always stock up boxes of frozen blueberries in freezer for her convenience (and mine....
Reason no 3 ~ I was intrigued by the combinations of diary products with rose water...

I'll go no further than 3... before everyone get bored and started to (yawn)

Fresh blueberries and a single rose flower from my garden... (frozen blueberries in a bowl)

But ...I tweaked her recipe just a teeny weeny bit... (Donna Hay's version ~ in brackets). I do not wish to waste 100ml of buttermilk.... it still turn out delicious eventhough with extra buttermilk, less cream and additional full cream milk... I omitted the blueberry jam as I have this gorgeous Blueberries Velvet toppings that I purchased from Denmark (in Western Australia ... not Denmark ~ Europe) .. to go with it...

600 ml buttermilk (DH ~ 2 cups or 500ml)
300 ml light cream (DH ~ 2 cups or 500ml)
100 ml full cream milk (DH ~ not applicable)
1 cup icing sugar
1 tablespoon rosewater
1 tablespoon gelatine
1/3 cup of water
frozen blueberries
Blueberry Velvet toppings from Blue Eden
  1. Mix gelatine and water and put it aside. 
  2. Place the buttermilk, cream, sugar and milk in the saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolved.
  3. Add gelatine mixture and keep stirring until gelatine dissolved (another 3 minutes). Strain and allow to cool.
  4. Pour into dessert glass or container.
  5. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours or overnight until set.
  6. Serve with some blueberry toppings and fresh or frozen blueberries.
