The Hill Team enjoyed a delightful three days in Temecula wine country recently. There is so much to experience that three weeks would not have been enough.
Buttermilk Limoncello Panna Cotta
2 cups heavy cream
1 cups Butter Milk
2 oz of Limoncello
3 leaves gelatin (Bloom in Ice Water for 2 minutes)
1/2 vanilla beans
6 oz sugar
8- 4 oz. Plastic cups
Bring the cream and buttermilk to a low simmer for about 2 minutes.
Stir in sugar, let it come back to a simmer for a minute and turn off the flame.
Whisk in the bloomed gelatin and cover with plastic wrap.
Let sit for 30 to 45 minutes and swish stir every 20 minutes so the mixture starts to cool down a bit.
Pour into plastic cup and let sit in refrigerator until set.
1 pints strawberries, cut strawberries into four
1/2 cup sugar
Place all the ingredients into a large bowl, covered with plastic, over a pot of simmering water, let cook on very low flame for 1 hour or until the beautiful strawberry jus has extracted from the berries.
Strain through a coffee filter and chill the jus.
Place fresh strawberries (or berries of your choice) and a couple of tablespoons of jus over the panna cotta and serve.
We heartily recommend the Temecula Creek Inn for a family vacation. It is an inn for all seasons. We have been before and cannot wait to return again to renew our spirits and taste buds.
