Directions

  1. Oil four 5 oz. ramekins.
  2. Pour ¼ cup cream into a small heatproof bowl, sprinkle gelatin over the cream; let stand 10 minutes, or until softened.
  3. Place the bowl in a larger bowl of hot water and stir until the gelatin has dissolved.
  4. Meanwhile, bring the remaining 1 ½ cups cream, the sugar, zest, and salt to a boil over medium heat in a saucepan.
  5. Decrease heat to low and cook, at a bare simmer, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove pan from heat, add the gelatin mixture and the lemon juice, and stir until smooth.
  7. Pour through a fine strainer into a 4-cup glass measure.
  8. Divide the cream mixture evenly among the ramekins; let cool to room temperature.
  9. Refrigerate, loosely covered, for at least 3 hours or up to 1 day, until set and thoroughly chilled.
  10. To serve, dip the ramekins, one at a time, into a bowl of hot water for about 5 seconds and run a table knife around the edges.
  11. Invert the panna cotta onto 4 chilled dessert plates and serve immediately.
