Panna Cotta

  • 1 tablespoon powdered gelatin
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 Limoneira® lemon zest & juice
  • 1 lemon zest only
  • 1 tablespoon Cointreau
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Mango Citrus Sauce

  • 3 cups mango peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Limoneira® lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon Limoneira® orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 3 tablespoons water


Day Before

  • Add the freshly squeezed lemon juice to a bowl, adding water if necessary to make up 1/4 cup.
  • Sprinkle the gelatin over the liquid, and let it react (or bloom), for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the cream, sugar, and lemon zest to a saucepan over a medium-low setting. Gently heat the mixture, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. It shouldn’t get hotter than a low simmer.
  • Using a whisk, blend in the gelatin mixture, until all of it has dissolved.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat, and stir in the Cointreau.
  • Divide the mixture between ramekins or glass bowls – you should end up with 4 to 6, depending on the size.
  • Place in the fridge, uncovered, and allow to set for at least 4 hours.
  • Once set, cover with plastic wrap, and allow them to chill overnight.

Next Day

  • Peel and seed the mangoes, and chop the flesh into small chunks.
  • Add the butter to a small saucepan over a medium-low heat, and allow to melt. Blend in the brown sugar, lemon and orange juices and zest, and water.
  • Add the mango fruit chunks, and raise the heat to medium.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture begins to thicken.
  • Remove from the heat and serve over the panna cotta.
