Panacotta is a classic dessert and one that everyone loves. Its a perfect dessert for a crowd. This recipe uses Australian cup measurements. You only need about 250 ml of jelly. for some brands this will only use up about 1/2 the packet. Set some of the extra jelly and eat it with strawberries and cream some other time
Leaf gelatin will completely dissolve in water so don't leave them and come back later. They will take a very short time to soften
Never use hot water to bloom gelatin.
The finished pannacotta will more than likely separate a little. Ways to prevent this happening in part are
1. by not boiling the gelatin.
2. Letting the milk cream mixture cool a little before pouring into the moulds
3. And most importantly by using leaf gelatin.
