Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 25 min.

Prepare the panna cotta with 125 ml liquid cream, 25 ml milk, 15 g caster sugar, 1 sheet gelatin and ½ vanilla pod.

When cool, share between the glasses and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Tip: Place these on a cloth or absorbant paper on a baking tray so that they are easier to move.

Put 1 sheet gelatin to soak in cold water.

Stage 3

Stage 4

Squeeze the juice of 3 clementines and ½ lemon and add this to the pan.

Put to heat gently and stir to dissolve the sugar. Once the juice is fairly hot, take off the heat, add the drained and dried gelatine and stir until fully dissolved.

Please note: It is important that the juice should not boil as it will lose much of its flavour.

Stage 5
