Honey peach panna cotta

Makes 4 servings

Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 3 min

The floral flavour of honey is a perfect pairing for peaches. Simple to make with pantry ingredients, this dessert is impressive on the plate.


1 pkg unflavoured gelatin 7 g
2 cups milk, divided 500 ml
  Pinch of salt  
2 tbsp liquid honey 25 ml
1 tsp vanilla extract 5 ml
1 can (14 oz) sliced peaches in juice* 398 ml
  Ground cinnamon  
Refrigeration time: 3 hours


Step 1
In a measuring cup or bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the milk; let stand for 5 minutes to soften. In a small saucepan, heat remaining milk over medium heat, stirring often, just until steaming. Add gelatin mixture, reduce heat to low and heat, stirring, for about 1 minute, or until gelatin is dissolved. Pour into a large measuring cup or bowl; stir in salt, honey and vanilla and let cool to room temperature.

Step 2
Meanwhile, drain peaches, reserving 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the juice. Measure 3/4 cup (175 mL) of the peach slices; cover and refrigerate remaining peaches for garnish. In a tall cup using an immersion blender or in an upright blender, purée 3/4 cup (175 mL) peaches and reserved juice until smooth (you should have about 2/3 cup / 150 mL purée). Stir into cooled milk mixture.

Step 3
Pour into four 3/4-cup (175 mL) ramekins or other bowls. Cover ramekins and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, until set, or for up to 2 days.

Step 4
Just before serving, cut reserved peaches into thinner slices. Set ramekins in a shallow dish half-filled with hot water for 1 to 2 minutes. Wipe dishes dry, run a knife around the edge of panna cotta and invert onto serving plates to unmold. Garnish with sliced peaches and sprinkle with cinnamon.


* This recipe works best with canned peaches; fresh peaches will cause the milk to split.
