Lychee Panna Cotta

Smooth, soft panna cotta and lychee go perfectly together.

5 g
Water
1 tablespoon
Heavy cream
150 ml
Milk
300 ml
Sugar
50 g

Lychee (canned)
100-200 g (as you like)
Mint leaves (optional)
for accent!

Steps

1. Combine the gelatin and water.
2. Combine the heavy cream, milk and sugar, and heat. Don't let it come to the boil.
3. Dissolve the gelatin over a double boiler, and add to the mixture from Step 2. Mix well.
4. Add the rum.

Story Behind this Recipe

I received some canned lychee. Rather than just eating them as-is, I thought adding them to panna cotta would bring out their gentle flavor. I made the panna cotta runnier than usual by adjusting the ingredients. For normal panna cotta, use equal amounts of heavy cream and milk.
