Finger Lime Panna Cotta

Ingredients

  • 600 ml pure cream
  • 300 ml thickened cream
  • 180 grams caster sugar
  • 1 Ceylon vanilla bean, split
  • 1 Ceylon cinnamon quill
  • 3 sheets leaf gelatine
  • 3 Pulp of finger limes (2 pink flesh, 1 green flesh)
  • Finger Lime Syrup
  • 250 ml water
  • 125 grams caster sugar
  • 2 Pulp of finger limes (1 pink flesh, 1 green flesh)

Preparation

  1. Put the creams into a saucepan with the sugar, cinnamon quill and the vanilla pod. Cook over low heat, stir until the sugar dissolves, then simmer gently for about 2 minutes, turn heat off, and remove the pod and the quill.
  2. Add the gelatine leafs to a small bowl of water until soft, about 5 minutes, drain and squeeze dry to remove water, add to the cream mixture and stir until dissolved. Allow to cool slightly and mix in the finger lime pulp.
  3. Pour into ramekins and refrigerate until set.
  4. Into a saucepan add the water and sugar, stir over a low heat until sugar dissolves, then simmer until the mixture starts to thicken slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat allow to cool slightly then gently add the finger lime pulp, leave the syrup mixture to cool completely (leave over night if possible as this will allow the colour of the pink finger lime to infuse into the syrup)
  5. To plate up dip the ramekins into hot water for about 10 seconds, tip onto plate and pour over with the finger lime syrup.
