AT A GLANCE
Greengages are a fabulous plum with a green skin and golden flesh that tastes like it's been soaked with honey. If you can't get them just substitute with another plum variety. Start this recipe a day ahead to set the panna cotta.
|01||For liquorice panna cotta, stir milk, liquorice and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until liquorice is mostly dissolved (about 10 minutes), then strain into a jug. Squeeze excess water from gelatine, add to warm milk mixture and stir to dissolve. Divide among 200ml serving glasses and chill in the refrigerator overnight to set.|
