Panna Cotta Made with Agar Agar
This panna cotta is made with agar agar, a vegetarian gelatin substitute made from red algae. Agar agar is stable at room temperature.
Servings: 8 servings
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 1/2 teaspoons agar agar powder
- 1/4 cup honey plus extra for drizzling
Place all ingredients in a saucepan over medium high heat and stir occasionally until the agar-agar has dissolved completely or almost completely (as noted above, I could never get the flakes to completely dissolve), about 15 minutes. The mixture should remain simmering, but not come to a heavy boil.
Let the mixture stand for about 10 minutes at room temperature and pour into a silicone mold (any shape you'd like) or ramekins. I made mine in a silicone cupcake tin. I filled the molds 3/4 full and the recipe made eight.
Refrigerate until the panna cotta sets, 2-3 hours.
Serve cold, drizzled with honey.
I got the recipe for the honey panna cotta by adjusting a recipe for vanilla panna cotta from from Linden Tea.
