Panna Cotta Serving Suggestion 1

Panacotta is delicious served with seasonally ripe nectarines and peaches!

Panna Cotta Serving Suggestion 2

Panacotta is fabulous with mango chunks as well!

Panna Cotta Serving Suggestion 3

Serve panacotta with some crushed, raw nuts sprinkled on top.   The photo shows pecans, but you could use almonds, brazil nuts, walnuts, cashews, or any mixture you choose.
One more thing .. I have found it easiest to dissolve the plain, unflavored gelatin in a bit of boiling water before stirring it into the cream.   I had no luck dissolving it directly in warmed cream as Maureen showed in the videoblog without ending up with little lumps of gelatin in the final dish.   Dissolving in a bit of boiling water first ensures a very smooooooooth panacotta!
