Strawberry Panna Cotta with Homemade Strawberry Jam

Yesterday while cleaning the refrigerator, I found the unopened pack of strawberries that I bought last week before we left for Texas City. I was supposed to snack on them during our trip but I forgot to put them in the cooler. I was sad to find them overripe! I really hate food going to waste, so I thought of something to use them with. I still have some strawberry jam that I made a week ago and there's still more done a dozen of strawberry ice candy in the freezer, so I thought of just making strawberry shake. But the girls said no because they just had snack. Then I remembered seeing a panna cotta recipe at Alchemy In the Kitchen. After checking the ingredients I have, I decided to just make this dessert, which Clarise and Cherlin called "super yummy". Inspired by Alchemy in the Kitchen's panna cotta, I came up with my version of Strawberry Panna Cotta, and I used my homemade strawberry jam as topping. I was so glad with the outcome! I saved the strawberries from going to waste and we all enjoyed our tasty dessert!
  
 
Ingredients:

For panna cotta
  • 2 cups strawberries, sliced
  • 6 Tbsp sugar
  • 2½ envelopes Knox Unflavored Gelatine
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp fresh orange juice
    Procedure:

    1. Make the panna cotta:
      1.1 Blend strawberries, evaporated milk, orange juice and sugar in a blender until very smooth. Pour through a fine sieve into a bowl. Discard solids.

      1.2 Sprinkle gelatin over milk in a small bowl and let stand 1 minute to soften.
      1.3 In a saucepan, bring cream to a boil over low heat. Remove from heat and add gelatin mixture, stirring until gelatine powder is dissolved.

      1.4 Whisk cream mixture into strawberry purée until well bleded. Pour into molds. Chill until firm for at least 3 hours.

    2. While waiting for panna cottas to stand, make homemade strawberry jam. Allow to cool down to room temperature.


    3. To serve, run a sharp knife around the edge of each Panna Cotta and unmold each onto a serving plate. Pour about 1 Tbsp homemade strawberry jam onto each panna cotta. Garnish as desired.

    20. Wow! This is beautiful! I love the shape of the molds that you used and I'm sure my gals will love to have some too! :D

      Ps: You can just leave the panna cotta in the mold itself, topped with your homemade strawberry jam and put it inside the bento. I'm sure it'll be very nice! ;)
