Honey Chamomile Panna Cotta

Honey Chamomile Panna Cotta

This Honey Chamomile Panna Cotta is simply a silky, melt-in-your-mouth kind of pudding with delicate chamomile flavor and finished with honey drizzle.

 

There is so much to love about a panna cotta. Firstly, it is pretty effortless to make. For the best part, you can play around a wide spectrum of different flavors and richness. In addition, you get to have fun with jiggling your plate from side to side. This delicate dessert wobbles beautifully on the plate.

I decided to start the series of tea-infused panna cotta because tea and panna cotta make a great dessert with an interesting taste experience. My first time making tea-infused panna cotta came from the previous Rose Infused Panna Cotta. It is dreamy, silky, and rich with a unique and delicate rose flavor. I could not get enough of it.

This Honey Chamomile Panna Cotta is obviously my second series of tea-infused panna cotta. It includes very few basic ingredients and is simply a mixture of dried chamomile flowers infused with cream, milk, sugar, vanilla, as well as gelatin. The gelatin sets the mixture and creates a firm silky creamy smooth texture.

 

About Chamomile

Chamomile or camomile is a daisy-like flowering herb that comes from Asteraceae family of plants. It is well-known for its flower, particularly the yellow heads. Fresh and dried flowers are used for various culinary and medicinal purposes. It has a gentle floral aroma that is very relaxing. That is why the tea can be very calming and act as a natural sedative.

 

About Honey Chamomile Panna Cotta

I start with chamomile flavor since it is a classic and a staple for almost every tea enthusiast. Chamomile tea is one of the top three enjoyed teas in the world. Therefore, I believe everyone can make this recipe at home since it is pretty common everywhere. I got the natural dried chamomile flowers online instead of using tea bags for better flavor. The result is a light and fresh grounded earthy flavor with hints of floral sweetness.

Due to its natural light and floral notes, I reduce half of the sugar to balance its sweetness. A drizzle of honey transforms chamomile panna cotta into a true tea dessert instantly.

Keyword Panna Cotta
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whole milk (120 ml)
  • 2 cups heavy cream (480 ml)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (50 gr)
  • 2 sheets gelatin
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dried chamomile flowers (20 gr)
  • honey for topping

Instructions

  1. If you plan to unmold the panna cotta onto plates, lightly grease the inside of the glasses with vegetable oil and use a paper towel to wipe out most of the oil, leaving only a light residue. Otherwise, you can leave them uncoated.

  2. Soak the gelatin sheet in cold water until soft. Set aside.

  3. In a medium saucepan, heat milk, heavy cream, and sugar until simmer (do not boil). Remove from the heat.

  4. Squeeze gelatin to remove any excess water and add it to the pan, stirring constantly until the gelatin is melted.

  5. Add vanilla extract and dried chamomile flowers. Allow the mixture to steep for 10-15 minutes.

  6. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve and pour evenly among the prepared molds. Refrigerate until set for at least 4 hours or overnight.

  7. To remove from the mold, dip the bottom of the mold into a pot of hot water to loosen the panna cotta. Slide a knife around the edge, then carefully turn over onto a serving plate.

  8. Serve with honey drizzle.
