A Very Pretty Dessert

Wish I’d posted about this earlier in the year when pomegranates were at their best.  But I didn’t.  And this dessert idea  is just too pretty to be filed away in a dusty Flickr vault for another 10 months.  So here it is:

Buttermilk Pannacotta with Pomegranate Seeds and Mint.


I’ve posted the pannacotta recipe before here.  To serve, simply scatter with pomegranate seeds and torn mint.

  1. I may not be a fan of panna cotta but those pomegranate seeds and mint leaves look gorgeous – it looks very festive – glad you shared it! I am still a bit unclear about pomegranate season but my sightings of pomegranates has not lasted very long here!

  2. Johanna – Is it two words then? “Panna cotta” rather than “pannacotta”? Must investigate.

    Patricia – Thank you!

    Helen – Ah, I’ve discovered that if you deseed them under water in a large tub/bowl all the seeds sink and the white pith floats. Pomegranate life is much easier now. 🙂

  3. Very nice indeed. It is one word…I think.

    Have been playing with pannacotta made with agar-agar rather than gelatine. Not worth trying, frankly…

  4. Antonia – 🙂

    Lucy – I tried making it with vege-gel and it failed completely. Had to pop them in the freezer and eat them as ices instead.

    Michelle – Wikipedia agrees with you on the two words, Lucy doesn’t! I’m clueless. 🙂

    Johanna – It’s one of my favourite desserts but I haven’t a clue!

  5. At first I thought I was looking through a food magazine with your superb photo’s Wendy!! This is some pretty dessert in fact stunning comes to mind 😀

  6. Deb – Me too. 🙂

    Kaykat – I love pomegranate too. Such lovely fruit.

    Cynthia – Why, thank you. 😉

    Nina – Aww, you’re too kind. It did taste lovely.

  7. Pretty indeed! This reminds me of a drink I had in Bhutan once with seltzer water, pomegranate juice and mint leaves.

  8. Norecipes – Not sure what seltzer water is. Off to look that up!

    Diva – The nice thing about buttermilk pannacotta is that it’s lighter. So you can eat more! 😉

    Niamh – Thank you! Let me know how you get on.
