Splendid panna cotta

I made a jaw-droppingly delicious panna cotta last night - better than any I have eaten anywhere. Used this recipe: http://splendidtable.publicradio.org/... with a couple of adjustments. Instead of the vanilla extract, I used a whole vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped and infused it into the cream as I was heating it. And I also used the larger amount of gelatin (1-3/4 tsp.) because I was worried it would be too soft. It was absolutely perfect. Served it with a puree of mixed berries (just cooked some frozen mixed berries with a bit of sugar, then pureed and strained out the seeds) and some fresh raspberries.

The sour cream adds a bit of complexity to the flavour and the vanilla seeds give it a tiny bit of crunch and amazing vanilla depth. This one is going into my regular rotation. My friends are going to be so sick of it...
