Blood Orange Panna Cotta and a Citrus Blog HopPosted on Mar 23, 2012 | 80 comments
Is there anything as beautiful as a blood orange? Their gorgeous tart flavor and vibrant red color make them irresistible to me. So irresistible, in fact, that I dragged two kilos home from Tel Aviv (an hour and a half away) just so I could have my way with these seductive fruits. I drank blood orange juice and put it in cocktails. And I made this: blood orange panna cotta. It was so good, and so easy! Bursting with bright citrus flavor, the blood orange dyes the dessert a beautiful shade of pink. It’s the ultimate palate cleanser, and a wonderful end to any meal.
The texture is silky smooth but light, and the cardamom-blood orange syrup drizzled over is sensational. Such an elegant flavor combination! I didn’t change the recipe from the original at Bon Appetit, so I’m going to send you over there to take a look. Get the recipe here!
I also want to thank everyone for their kind words of support for my cookbook!! If you somehow missed my post and millions of emails, Facebook, and Twitter posts, I hope you’ll read more about it here.
I can’t wait to see what you link up!
