Great recipe which you can play around with and add other flavors such as I did with rosewater and framboise

You can vary this recipe by adding different flavors to the panna cotta mixture before setting it.

I added rosewater and framboise and made a rosewater, cranberry and framboise jelly which I poured on top of the set panna cotta and then set the jelly - it was really nice,
