Ingredients

  • 6 elder flowers
  • 450g of double cream
  • 150 ml of milk
  • 1 vanilla pod or tps of vanilla extract
  • 2 gelatine sheets
  • 3 tbs of icing sugar
  • 225g of greek yogurt

How to make elder flower panna cotta

  • Put the cream and milk in a wide bottomed pan
  • Split the vanilla pod and scrape into the pan
  • Stir into a cream
  • Shake the elder flowers to remove any bugs
  • Put the elder flowers into the mixture and leave for a couple of hours
