Panna Cotta with Fresh Blueberries



I have been wanting to try to make panna cotta for forever. I love custards and I knew that this would be no different. I have surprisingly never even had panna cotta before this.

I was browsing through Giada DeLaurentiis's book, Everyday Italian and I saw that she has a recipe for this. I have had a lot of success with Giada's recipes in the past and I figured that this would be the same.

I was surprised to see how much honey was called for in the recipe and honestly it was too much for me. It called for 1/3 a cup in the batch. For anyone that likes honey, they would love this. I am just not a big fan of honey and will find a recipe with just sugar for next time.

The panna cotta was really creamy and I enjoyed the consistency. I decided to serve this with some blueberries sprinkled on top and am glad that I did. Any type of fresh berry would have been great.

If you would like to view the recipe for this then you can get it from the Food Network site here.
