Panna Cotta with Mixed Berry Sauce
This is where the panna cotta with fruit mirror comes in - delicious and healthy on top of that! The berries are a perfect secret weapon in the fight against aging: their high content of antioxidants, nutrients and minerals provides effective protection against free radicals that cause our skin to age rapidly.
You can prepare the panna cotta with fruit mirror the day before you want to serve the Italian classic. However, you should not put the fruit mirror over the panna cotta until just before serving.
Soften the gelatin in cold water. Slit the vanilla pod lengthwise and bring to a boil with the cream and 60 g (approximately 2 ounces) of sugar. Squeeze out the gelatin. Remove the cream from the heat, and dissolve the geltin, stirring constantly. Cool for 10 minutes, then remove the vanilla pod. Rinse 4 glasses in cold water, then divide the vanilla mixture into them. Chill, covered, for at least 4 hours in the refrigerator.
Rinse, trim, and chop the berries. Set 4 tablespoons aside for garnish. Mix the rest with the remaining sugar and lemon juice, then puree. Pass the puree through a fine strainer, and use to top the panna cotta before serving. Garnish with the reserved berries and the mint.
