White Chocolate - Mint Panna Cotta

It's been a while since I posted any kind of dessert, altough I haven't stopped baking, but I served old favourites and a bunch of ice creams and sorbets so nothing really exciting. Since a very long time I can not get the white chocolate-mint combination out of my mind. Besides I am totally in mint fever! Lately, there is no day without mint and I am having this meanwhile for about two weeks. Yesterday, I prepared gyros and of course I had to add mint to the sauce as I used lamb and anyway, mint is just a must nowdays. I wonder what is going to be the next ingredient that I am totally crazy about. At the first place I wanted to serve this panna cotta with caramelised ananas, but instead I made some ananas chips and served it with fresh passion fruit.

250 ml heavy cream
75 ml milk
50 g white chocolate
1 bunch of peppermint
12 g sugar
2 gelatine leaves

Heat heavy cream and milk together with the peppermint over low heat and right before it reaches the boiling point set aside and let it stand for 5 minutes. Then remove the peppermint, sieve if necessary and put it back to the still warm stove. Add sugar and chopped white chocolate and mix until it is well incorporated. Stir in the previously soaked gelatine and pour the mixture into 4 small ramequins and cool it for at least 5 hours in the fridge.

I wish I still had fresh mint in my garden. But, that time is coming.

Lovely still life.
