I have a fetish for desserts. And desserts that are not loaded with butter or clarified butter sings to me, ” Come on, baby! ” all the time. What i love about desserts in a jar is that they are controlled portions and totally mess free. Now, coming to Panna Cotta. The Italians sure do know their desserts. When it comes to picking one dessert, it will be panna cotta for me. I came across yogurt panna cotta a while back while i was scouring for panna cotta recipes. I was tempted to make it even way back then but cardamom and mango were almost having affairs with me. So, i let the thought be, only to make it happen with this month s challenge to whip up something delish and relish in a jar. I was simply amazed at how simple ingredients like cream, milk, sugar and yogurt can give one a high. Need i say more?
