    Buttermilk Panna Cotta With Peaches And Pistachio Praline

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes, plus 2-3 hours setting
    • Total time: 2 hours 25 minutes to 3 hours 25 minutes 60 minutes 60 minutes 60 minutes 25 minutes

    Serves: 8


    • 3 x 284ml pots double cream
    • 200g caster sugar
    • 2 vanilla pods, halved and seeds removed
    • Grated zest of 1 orange
    • 6 leaves gelatine
    • 284ml carton St Ivel Cultured Buttermilk
    • 50g shelled pistachio nuts, coarsely chopped
    • 2 ripe peaches


    1. Lightly oil 8 x 125ml pudding basins or dariole moulds. In a thick-bottomed pan, heat the double cream, 75g caster sugar, vanilla pods and seeds, and orange zest over a medium heat. Bring to the boil, then simmer until reduced by about a quarter to 750ml, stirring frequently so the cream doesn’t burn on the bottom of the pan.
    2. Place the gelatine leaves in a bowl of cold water, snapping them in half to fit, if necessary. Leave to soak for 5 minutes until very soft. Drain off the water and stir the gelatine into the hot cream. Strain into a clean bowl and allow to cool slightly - this takes around 20 minutes. Stir in the buttermilk and divide between the prepared moulds. Chill for 2-3 hours, until set.
    3. For the praline, scatter the pistachio nuts over a lightly greased piece of foil on a baking tray. In a small clean pan, melt the remaining sugar with 4 tbsp cold water over a medium heat and boil until it caramelises and is golden in colour. Pour over the pistachios and leave to cool. Once cool, break into pieces.
    4. Preheat the barbecue or a griddle pan to high. Halve the peaches, remove the stones and cut each half into four. Cook the peach slices for 1 minute or until the sides are lightly charred. Turn out the panna cottas by running the tip of a knife around the edge before briefly dipping the moulds into hot water and inverting them onto plates. Serve with the peach slices and shards of praline.
