  • Lightly grease the molds you're using for your panna cottas using a flavorless oil (vegetable oil).
  • Bloom the gelatin by soaking the sheets in a little cold water for around 5 minutes until softened.
  • In a saucepan, bring your cream, milk and sugar up to a simmer making sure it doesn't come to a boil. Then remove from the heat.
  • Remove any excess water from your softened gelatin by giving it a good squeeze. Add the gelatin sheets to the cream mix in your saucepan and stir until the gelatin is fully melted.
  • Now to add your flavorings. Add the vanilla extract and your camomile flowers. Give it all a mix and let steep for around 15 minutes.
  • Once steeped, strain the mixture through a fine sieve and pour into your molds portioning them out evenly. Leave to set in the fridge for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight if you have the time.
  • When it comes to turning the panna cotta out of the molds, use a thin knife to loosen around the edge of the mold. If the panna cotta does not easily come out, you can give the base of the molds a quick dip in some hot water for a few seconds to help loosen. Turn the panna cotta out onto your plate of choice.
  • Finally, add a drizzle of honey over the top to serve. You can also garnish with some extra chamomile flowers or a nut crumb. Enjoy!
