Panna Cotta with Dessert Wine

Ingredients (6 servings)

  • 2 tbsp hot water
  • 3 tsp powdered gelatin
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 300g (10.6 oz) crème fraîche, thick
  • 300g (10.6 oz) milk
  • 100g (3.5 oz) white chocolate
  • 80g (2.8 oz) brown sugar
  • 250g (8.8 oz) sweet wine, Vinsanto
  • 150g (5.3 oz) white grapes
In a very small bowl add hot water and pour in the gelatin. Mix well until dissolved. Leave it aside for later.
Grease, with light oil, 6 tins of ~120 gr (4.2 oz) into which we put the cream. We leave that aside and wait.
In a small saucepan put 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, chocolate cut into pieces, and crème fraîche.
Add the milk and place the pan onto a medium heat.
Stir regularly until homogeneous ingredients.
Withdraw the saucepan from the heat once the mixture starts to boil slightly.
Pour the melted gelatin and mix well.
Fill oiled ramekins and leave to cool for a while. After that cover them and refrigerate until the cream thickens. For ~2-3 hours.
Meanwhile prepare the syrup of sweet wine.
In a small saucepan, add the sweet wine and remaining brown sugar.
Boil over medium heat for 10 minutes or until a light syrup. Remove from the heat and pour the grapes.
When it's time for the panna cotta to be served, we run one blade around the custard and invert on a plate. Garnish with the mixture of the syrup.
