This dreamy panna cotta is “to die for!” Your friends and family will be amazed at your cooking skills when you serve them this elegant yet easy to make dessert. Panna cotta, or cooked cream, is a pudding that only uses a few ingredients. It can combined and layered with fresh fruit, ice cream, fruit syrup, pancakes or any other pairing you can imagine to create unique and elegant desserts. Panna cotta can be made to be melt in your mouth soft, or additional gelatin can be added to firm it up and mold it into unique and interesting shapes.
When I prepared this recipe for Mountain Plums, it was Shine Muscat season in Japan. Shine Muscat are sweet seedless green grapes that are available around the end of summer and into early autumn. Any green grapes can be used to prepare this recipe, and if grapes are not available then any wild berry will work just as well.
