Video: Making Panacotta (Traditional Italian Dessert)
by Sarah, The Healthy Home Economist on May 13, 2010
The videoblog for today features Maureen Diaz, a blogger for Liberation Wellness (http://liberationwellnessblog.com/). Maureen shows us all how to prepare panacotta, a traditional Italian dessert in my humble kitchen! Maureen is the author of Traditional Food Preparation Techniques and has recently produced a DVD series for Liberation Wellness. She is a Mother of 9 and has also been the Chapter Leader for the Weston A. Price Foundation in Gettysburg, PA for many years.
Many thanks to Maureen for sharing her knowledge with all of us!
The recipe used by Maureen is as follows:
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 Tbl grade B maple syrup or raw honey
2 1/2 tsp plain, unflavored gelatin
1 tsp vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean
Fresh berries for topping
Pour 1 cup of cream into a heavy saucepan. If using vanilla bean, place in saucepan now. Sprinkle the gelatin over top and leave for a few minutes to soften. Turn onto low heat and stir to completely dissolve the gelatin. Off heat, add the rest of the cream, maple syrup and vanilla. If using vanilla bean, take out, slice down the length of bean, scrape out seeds and add them to the pan discarding pod. Pour into serving dishes, cover and chill for an hour or two until set. Top with berries if desired.
