I’m going to need to make this a quick one, everybody! I’ve been wanting to get this recipe to you for days and days, but I’ve had some camera issues, and that kept getting in my way. And now it’s super late already, and I still have about a half dozen things on my to-do list that just must be accomplished before I go to bed, because when I wake up tomorrow, there’ll be no time for anything but cooking! Yessss! Thanksgiving cooking! Can’t wait.
And so, with no further ado, let me present to you these lovely Grapefruit Panna Cottas with Candied Cranberries. Impossibly luscious, utterly smooth, as creamy as creamy can be. And the flavor… to die for. Tart, refreshing grapefruit married with smooth, round vanilla. On top, a cool dollop of freshly whipped cream, and then… then it’s the best part of all, glittering sugar-coated cranberries, crackly and crunchy, bright and tart and oh so pretty.
To me, this dessert is the perfect blend of autumn and winter. (Am I’m really bringing up winter already?!) Cranberries - a quintessential fall fruit – and grapefruit – a darling of winter. The combination makes them absolutely perfect for this time of year. And that’s why I think, for those of you who aren’t that crazy about pumpkin pie (I’m one of those persons myself, by the way), this could be a perfect ending to your Thanksgiving feast. I only hope I’m not too late in getting this to you! I won’t be too hard on myself though, because these pretty panna cottas are simply splendid no matter what the occasion. You hardly need a holiday to enjoy them!
Happy Thanksgiving everybody! Happy cooking! Happy eating!
