This is very good and very easy! A velvety smooth texture and fresh garnish makes this seem like a gourmet dessert. You can use whatever kinds of fresh fruit are seasonal and fresh. This is another Best of Bridge recipe. Enjoy!
In large bowl, add gelatin to cold milk and let soften.
In saucepan, combine whipping cream, second amount of milk, sugar and vanilla and bring to a boil. Pour over gelatin mixture and stir until completely dissolved. Set bowl over very cold water and chill 1/2 hour, stirring occasionally, until almost set. Pour mixture into 8 individual 1/2 cup ramekins and store in fridge until completely set. Cover with plastic wrap if making the night before.
To serve, quickly dip ramekins in warm water to loosen sides. Invert onto individual serving plates and shake to release. Cut fruit into small pieces and arrange on each plate around panna cotta. In the photo in the cookbook, they have a small pile of each kind of fruit around the panna cotta.
