FOR THE PANNA COTTA:

TO SERVE:

  • 2 tablespoons chopped pistachios

Instructions

FOR THE MACERATED STRAWBERRIES:

  • Mix together the strawberries and 1/2 cup of the sugar in a small bowl. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour or overnight is even better, give them a stir every now and again..

FOR THE PANNA COTTA:

  • Pour the cold milk into a medium saucepan and sprinkle the gelatine evenly over the top. Allow it to “bloom” for 5 minutes (it should look a bit wrinkly by the end).
  • Turn the heat on low under the saucepan and stir for a minute or two until the gelatine has dissolved. Don’t let the mixture get too hot or to come to a simmer. It should only be just warm.
  • Add the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar and stir again, just until dissolved. This should only take another minute or two.
  • Take the saucepan off the heat. Pour in the cream and vanilla and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Pour into a large quiche dish.
  • Optional step: Puree about 1/4 of the macerated strawberries and drizzle a little over the panna cotta. It will settle below the surface.
  • Place the panna cotta in the fridge to set for at least 3 hours.
  • To serve, spoon over some of the macerated strawberries and sprinkle over pistachios. Reserve some of each for guests to add to their taste.
