What Is Panna Cotta
It’s hard to know what to make because every single one of the recipes looks so darn good. But, I choose the Honey Panna Cotta, a sweet, smooth, creamy little confection.
This cool and refreshing dessert is basically cooked cream with a bit of yogurt and capped with a luminous band of honey-flavored gelatin. It’s a great “make-ahead” dessert for a party table, and with it’s simple, not too sweet flavor, it would be the perfect ending to a heavy meal.
I garnished the panna cotta with spun sugar, which was pretty quick and easy too ( I watched this video on how to spin sugar)……..just a little messy. But you could certainly garnish with a piece of fruit or almond slice.
Smooth, creamy and oh so decadent!

I can’t eat any refined sugar. Could I add more honey in replace of the white sugar?
Do you allow the honey gelee to cool a bit before pouring over the chilled panna cotta?
it cools some while you stir to dissolve the gelatin, but you could let it cool a little longer if you’d like
