Ingredients

Ingredients for Panna Cotta
2 sheets of gelatin
1/2 cup scant milk
2 1/4 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 vanilla bean, slit lengthwise
Ingredients for Berry Sauce
1 pint of your favorite berries or cherries
1/4 cup or less sugar (depending on sweetness of berries)
1/4 cup of water
optional- mint, lemon juice, lemon zest, etc

Preparation

1
Fill a bowl with water, add the gelatin and let is soak. Pour milk into a pan & bring to just below simmering, then remove the pan from the heat. Do NOT let it boil. Drain & squeeze out the gelatin & add the milk. Pour the cream into another pan, add the sugar and vanilla bean and bring to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Immediately remove the pan from the heat, remove the vanilla bean and stir in the milk mixture.
2
You can put the mixture into any kind of ramekin, mold, cup, you like. Rinse your 'glass' in ice-cold water, shaking out any excess water & fill with the milk mixture. Chill in the refrigerator for several hours until set (at least 3-4 hours). Turn out onto a serving dish & serve with fruit sauce or chocolate sauce.
3
Put the berries, sugar & water in a pot & simmer for 15-20 minutes until the fruit breaks down & forms a syrup.
4
Drizzle over the top of the panna cotta once on the serving plate.
