To prepare saffron panna cotta, follow these steps:
Saffron panna cotta is a soft, creamy and saffron-scented dessert with a beautiful golden color and a flavor that is both intense and mild.
Saffron is a spice derived from the dried marks (red threads) of the saffron crocus. It is one of the world’s most expensive spices due to the labor-intensive process of growing and harvesting it.

- 1 teaspoon saffron threads

- Put the gelatin leaves in cold water and let them soften for about 5-10 minutes.
- Add cream, milk and sugar to a saucepan. Heat over medium heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
- Put the saffron strands in some warm water and let them soak for about 5 minutes. Add the saffron water to the cream mixture and mix well.
- Squeeze the water out of the gelatine leaves and add them to the hot cream mixture. Remove the pan from the heat and add the vanilla extract. Mix well.
- Pour the panna cotta mixture into small portions or glasses. Allow to cool to room temperature, then place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours to set.
- When the panna cotta has solidified completely, it can be served. You can top it with fresh berries, sauces or grated chocolate if you like.
