The Buttermilk in this Panna Cotta recipe gives a wonderful tang to a normally dull sweet-milk taste. This is just slightly sweet, and wonderfully easy to make. Use my strawberry-pomegranate coulis, or even just whipped cream on top to serve.

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the cream, sugar, and vanilla.
  2. Heat until warm (about 140 degrees F) or until vanilla has had enough time to steep and sugar is dissolved.
  3. While cream is heating, dissolve the gelatin in about 1/4 cup of room temperature water, in a medium bowl.
  4. Once cream has heated sufficiently, pour the mixture over the gelatin in the bowl and stir until fully dissolved.
  5. Stir in the buttermilk slowly, until just combined.
  6. Divide into 8 ramekins, and chill for 2 hours, or until set.
