What does pink taste like? Flutters of childhood innocence like roaming a rose garden. To savor a bit of pink’s wonderful qualities, try The Taste Curators‘ Rose Panna Cotta with Berries recipe.
The impact of color is so profound that it’s been said that it influences 85% of our purchasing decisions. When you really think about it, this is as true when picking out the freshest bunch of basil as it is when choosing a new hat or new wallpaper. If we open ourselves up to it and acknowledge its power, color makes for impactful experiences.
Rose Panna Cotta with Berries Recipe
For the Panna Cotta:
3 cups half-and-half
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp rose water
For the Topping:
1 cup strawberries, quartered
1 cup raspberries
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp lemon zest from 1/2 a lemon
Pinch of kosher salt
- Grease the inside of 6 (4 oz) ramekins with cooking spray. Wipe out any excess with a paper towel, leaving a light coating of oil.
- Pour the half-and-half into a small saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatin over the top and allow it to sit until the gelatin looks wet, about 5 minutes.
- Place the saucepan over medium heat. Add the sugar and salt. Whisk to combine. Bring to just below a simmer, stirring often with a rubber spatula to dissolve the sugar, about 5 minutes. Stir in the rose water. Pour the mixture into the prepared ramekins and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
- To serve, combine both berries, the sugar, lemon zest, and salt in a medium bowl. Mix everything together and toss well to coat. Allow the berries to macerate at room temperature for 5 minutes, or overnight in the refrigerator, to allow the flavors to marry. Run a thin knife around the edge of each ramekin and invert each panna cotta onto small serving plates. Top with a spoonful of berries and serve immediately.
Cook’s note: If the panna cotta is sticking, submerge the bottom of each ramekin in warm water for 30 seconds at a time and try to invert it again. Continue to do this until it slides out easily.
