Method

 
For the panna cotta, soak the gelatine leaves in a little cold water until soft.

Place the milk, cream, vanilla pod and seeds and sugar into a pan and bring to a simmer. Remove the vanilla pod and discard.

Squeeze the water out of the gelatine leaves, then add to the pan and take off the heat. Stir until the gelatine has dissolved.

Divide the mixture among 8 - 10 ramekins and leave to cool. Place into the fridge for at least 1 hour, until set.

To serve, turn each panna cotta out(by heating the sides of the ramekins slightly) onto a serving plate or leave in ramekins(if they are attractive)  with berry compote and fresh mint.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
