I love mango and think everything goes with mango but sadly my family does not share my love affair with this fruit. This week on Tuesdays with Dorie we are making Vanilla Mango Panna Cotta on page 370 of Baking Chez Moi. I have never had or made a panna cotta before so this was all new to me.
Next I brought to a boil two cups of half and half and 1/4 cup of sugar. I substituted whole milk and heavy cream with half and half. I also did not have a vanilla bean on hand so I substituted with vanilla extract. Then I bloomed the gelatin in cold water for 3 minutes, then microwaved it for 20 seconds to melt it. The cream mixture was brought back to a boil and then added to the gelatin mixture. I let the the liquid cool and even put it in the refrigerator for a while because I really did not want to melt my mango.
Despite my husband's dislike of mango he enjoyed this one. I really liked it too but gelatinous texture is not my favorite. My son who likes gelatin did not want one, can't win them all sometimes. But I do have my son to thank for this wonderful picture. My blog is sometimes a family affair.
