CLEMENTINE PANNA COTTA

INGREDIENTS – serves 6

Juice and rind of 6 clementines
250ml double cream
200ml milk
2 tbsp caster sugar
4 leaves of gelatine

FOR THE JELLY
Juice and rind of 2 clementines
1/4 tsp of agar agar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp sugar

FOR THE BERRIES
150g mixed berries
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of ground nutmeg
Pinch of ground ginger

FOR THE CITRUS SABLE
100g plain flour
75g unsalted butter
100g caster sugar
2 egg yolks
zest of an orange and clementine

METHOD
1. Pre-heat the oven to 190oc
2. Soak the gelatine leave in water until soft
3. Add the remaining ingredients fro the panna cotta into a pan and heat gently. DO NOT BOIL, this will change the texture
4. When the gelatine leaves are soft, squeeze out the excess water and add to the cream mix stirring until completely dissolved
5. Pour the panna cotta mix into serving dishes and pop in the fridge to set
6. For the biscuits, make a dough out of the ingredients and rest in the fridge in cling film to firm up (this will make it easier to use later)
7. After 10 minutes roll into a cylinder then cut slices approximately 1/2 a cm thick then bake for 8-10mins, they will firm up as they cool down
8. To spice the berries, add all the ingredients into a small pan and heat through swirling instead of stirring to keep the berries whole
9. Once the spices have combined fully, set to one side
10. Lastly, to make the jelly, mix the ingredients together and bring to the boil until the agar agar has dissolved
11. Take the jelly mixture of the heat and pour into molds straight away as it sets at around 40oc
12. Put it all together and plate up as you wish

Enjoy : ) x

Hi! I'm Bea, I am a food teacher at a secondary school. I live just outside Manchester and all its foodie offerings. This is my blog Bea's Bites Online, I'll be posting all about food and drink with an added smattering of travel. I am lucky enough to have grown up with a variety of influences, my mum is from Zimbabwe, my dad is from Ghana and I grew up in a village in the North West, so food has always been a blend and balance of cultures for me. From being little, food has played a large part in our family, whether it be for celebrations, commiserations or comfort. I began helping out in the kitchen from a young age and was fortunate enough to be given the reigns on occasion from the age of 11. I love being in the kitchen and having the opportunity to create something to make others smile. Whether it be an autumnal main or a gooey dessert :) I am a total believer in happy eating. Food should put a smile on your face no whether it's a weekday, after work dinner or a special occasion. I love following recipes and do think it is sometimes a necessity but I also think that food should be personal and geared towards what you like and I hope this comes across in my blog. I hope you enjoy reading my posts, let me know if you stop by, it will definitely put a smile on my face! Please don't hesitate to get in touch, my email is: beasbitesonline@hotmail.com If you have any posts you'd like to see then please feel free to email me and I'll do my best : ) Bea x
