Cranberry Carmel Panna Cotta

I attempted a raw panna cotta a couple years ago, and although it was tasty it wasn’t exactly a perfect alternative to the creamy dairy dessert. I’d actually never tried true panna cotta but saw recipes floating around the food blog world and found it particularly intriguing. This recipe was my first true attempt as I went ahead and cooked the necessary ingredients. However, I did use coconut sugar and raw milk, which seemed to take on a new consistency and color of its own. Although the end product wasn’t what I planned it was still delicious, fun to eat, and enjoyed by all!

Cranberry Carmel Panna Cotta
2 cups whole milk
1 cup cream
1 cup coconut sugar
1 cup whole cranberries
1 cup water
1 Tablespoon gelatine powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Boil down cranberries with water in a medium saucepan on medium heat. The cranberries should burst, the skins should begin to shrivel, and the seeds should be visible. Once the liquid in the pan thickens pour through a strainer into a mixing bowl. Discard cranberries (or save for later) and mix in gelatin powder. In another medium saucepan bring cream, sugar, and vanilla to a boil until sugar completely dissolves. Mix in cranberry gel and then pour everything into a mixing bowl. Stir in milk. Refrigerate 4-5 hours or overnight.
