Step-by-Step Recipe: Jasmine Panna Cotta with Blueberry Syrup

Back in the kitchen with Queenie, who came up with this recipe and whipped up this delicious dessert in a matter of minutes. I had no idea making panna cotta was so easy.

The smooth panna cotta infused with Jasmine tea is perfect with the sweet yet slightly tart blueberry syrup.

INGREDIENTS

Jasmine Panna Cotta
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 tablespoon sugar
1 pinch of salt
3 Jasmine tea bags

Blueberry Syrup
1/3 cup frozen blueberries
1 teapsoon sugar
1/8 cup water 

1. Pour 1/3 cup of water in a bowl (we used a saucepan) and sprinkle in 1 teaspoon of unflavored gelatin. Set aside.

2. In a saucepan or pot, combine heavy cream (1 1/2 cups), sugar (1 tablespoon), and salt (a pinch) and bring to a low simmer over low heat. 

3. Once heated, turn off the heat and steep 3 Jasmine tea bags in the heavy cream for 3-5 minutes. Remove tea bags.

4. Take the prepared gelatin and pour it into the heavy cream. Mix well until all the gelatin has melted into the heavy cream. 

5. Fill small jars or cups with the panna cotta liquid and chill in the fridge for 3-4 hours.

6. To prepare the blueberry syrup, pour sugar (1 teaspoon), water (1/8 cup), and frozen blueberries (1/3 cup) into a saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes. 

7. Cool blueberry syrup.

8. After the heavy cream has firmed up in the fridge, pour the cooled blueberry sauce on top of the Jasmine panna cotta.

Nom nom... I am a huge fan of panna cotta, but haven't tried one with jasmine. They looks very good. Definitely would try it out soon.

Hi Ling, it's pretty quick to make so carving out some time shouldn't be too much of a problem. You'll love it!

Hi Lokness, the jasmine adds a nice flavor to the panna cotta, which goes perfectly with the blueberry syrup. Yes, please try it out!

I want to prop shop with you!

Georgia, I LOVE shopping for props, it's so much fun!
