Ingredients

  • ½ cup loosely packed fresh lemon
  • verbena leaves
  • 5 tbsp castor sugar
  • 2 cups (500ml) thickened cream

Method

Tear the lemon verbena leaves in half and gently bruise with sugar in a mortar and pestle.

Heat the thickened cream and milk in a small saucepan with the lemon verbena and sugar. Remove from heat and allow the delicate flavour to infuse for one to two hours.

Strain mixture through a sieve and return to the heat to warm gently.Soak gelatine leaves in cold water for a few minutes to soften. Squeeze the leaves to remove excess water.

Add gelatine to cream mixture and stir to dissolve. Stir in yoghurt and add lemon zest.

To unmould, dip the moulds in a bowl of hot water briefly, then turn upside down on to small serving plates and shake gently to release the panna cotta.
