500 ml of fresh cream
2 sheets and 1/2 of fish glue
1 Vanilla Berry
120 grams of icing sugar
200 grams of sugar
100 ml of water
Rind and a few drops of juice of an untreated orange
Rimbocchiamoci the sleeves and start by making the panna cotta. First we have to soak the fish glue in cold water, meanwhile we put the cream in a saucepan and trasferiamola on the fire in low flame. Add a little at a time the icing sugar and help with a whip to amalgamate the mixture well. We open the vanilla berry and preleviamone the seeds, Aggiungiamoli to our cream together with the pod which we then eliminate and stir. As soon as it is hot, we turn off the fire, remove the vanilla pod and add the well squeezed fish glue and continue to stir with our whip to prevent lumps forming. Let cool our cream so we move in the stencils that we will put in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
When the sugar has caramelized and has reached the classic amber color of caramel sauce, add the water to the boil and stir quickly. Pay close attention to this step because when the water touches the sugar, because of the temperature difference, it will splash a bit so protect your hands… Remove from the heat and keep stirring a little more then let the sauce cool down. It does not need storage in the fridge, you can safely pour it into a container to leave it out.
Now we can serve.
In A saucer We put one of our panna cotta and ricopriamola with a generous amount of caramel sauce letting it slip on the plate. Let’s take a leaves of mint and posizioniamocela on it. Plate ready.
