Posted @ • @ I told you 4 days ago... I'm in an Italian phase of folly, and right now it's made out of almond milk!
3 cups Almond Milk (unsweetened)
Agar agar (verify quantity on the package)
⅓ cup sugar
Fresh berries and berry compote
Shake the almond beverage well before opening. Pour into a medium bowl or measuring cup. If the liquid looks lumpy, whisk it smooth, then run it through a fine mesh sieve to remove any lumps. Transfer to a medium saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatin over the liquid and set aside for a few minutes until the gelatin starts to bloom.
Place the saucepan over medium low heat and stir until the gelatin dissolves completely, but do not heat the beverage to the point where it starts to smoke or boil -- that will de-activate the gelatin. To check that the gelatin is dissolved, dip your spoon into the liquid and look at the back of it for telltale clear grains -- if they're there, it's not fully dissolved.
After the gelatin has dissolved, add the sugar and stir until it's completely dissolved.
Spray 4-ounce ramekins with vegetable spray. Use a paper towel to wipe the spray evenly around the ramekin removing any excess and just leaving a fine film.
Divide the pannacotta mixture evenly among the ramekins and refrigerate until set -- At least two hours and up to overnight.
You can serve directly in the ramekins or for a more dramatic effect, add warm water to a bowl and hold the body of the ramekin in the water, not quite to the rim, for a few seconds. Run a very thin knife blade around the top edge of the pannacotta and place a plate upside down on top of the ramekin. Invert the pannacotta onto the plate.
Garnish with compote and berries. -
