BLACK SESAME  Panna Cotta

ACTIVE TIME: 15 MIN, START TO FINISH: 4 HRS, 15 MIN 

SERVES 6


In Italian, this delicate dish translates into "cooked cream." Here, the creamy classic gets a twist with the addition of ground black sesame seeds. As a bonus, the panna cotta can set overnight in the fridge-just pull out and serve at party time.

17     ounces heavy cream
1/4     cup granulated sugar
3     gelatin sheets, soaked and drained (or 11/2 teaspoons powdered gelatin)
1     ounce black sesame seeds, toasted and ground



TO  COMBINE:
Add ground sesame seeds and milk to a saucepan and heat over medium-high to just under a boil. Whisk in sugar until dissolved and then stir gelatin into milk until completely dissolved. Cook for another minute, stirring constantly.

TO SET:
Remove from heat and pour into molds. Let cool uncovered at room temperature and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least four hours, or overnight, to set.

TO SERVE:
Remove panna cotta from ramekins and garnish with fresh fruit.
