Summer dessert

Do you have rabarbra in your back yard? Then pick up three and make something good with it.

300g Rabarbra cut in 2x2cm squares. (DO NOT USE THE LEAVES)
100g sugar
5dl    water
optional: 1 whole cinnamon

Cook this up in a casserole until it split from eachother. You will notice.

Taste it, if it's sour then you add more sugar.
If you make it good, you should cool it down in room temperature first, then you can put it in the refrigerator.

Now let's make "Panna Cotta".

It is really easy, believe me. I could make my room mate make it.

So to make this, you want:

(4 persons)
1 vanilla bean (You cut it in half and you use a knife to get the "seeds" out.)
6 dl (cups) of whipping cream
1 dl sugar
3 plates of gelatin (you get this from the store)(Should be added when a faint haze appears in the casserole)
If you want, you could add some a piece lime juice and a little finely grated rind.

Okay, blend everything in a casserole, and keep stirring until the sugar disappears, don't make it boil, but when you see a faint haze forming then you should take it off the plate, it's done.
The gelatin plates should be in water for about 2-3minutes or until they have sucked in some water and become bulky. Then you squeeze the water out of them, and add it while the haze is appearing.
Yes, add the lime juice as well.

Okay, now find a suitable small cup to have the "panna cotta" into. If you want to use a coffee cup, then do so.

Put the panna cotta into the refrigerator, it should stay there for about an hour since it has to go from hot liquid to cold. What happens is, the panna cotta slowly becomes harder thanks to the gelatin. If it is too long inside the refrigerator, then it will become gel. 

If the panna cotta is hard, and you can touch it and your finger bounces off. Then it's time to try to get it out of the cup. To do this, gently use a small knife, stab it near the edge and make a circular motion around the edge of the cup. Find a plate, or better, a small soup plate that isn't so deep. Then put the cup upside down on the plate, and try to get it out.

If you successfully got it out, then it is the time to add the cold rabarbra "soup", have it around the panna cotta. Having the panna cotta in the middle of course. Then add some summer fresh strawberries.

This dessert will make the ladies fall in love with you. :-D
Creativity is the key.

You can even make the panna cotta into a heart shape.
