Make it a day ahead to free up some time when preparing your favorite dinner dish. Take it out from the fridge when ready to serve.

I used heavy whipping cream instead of all-purpose cream. Heavy cream contains more milk fat making the panna cotta more creamy.

How to serve your decadence.

You can use a ramekin or ceramic mold to make and serve your panna cotta decadence. You can either flip out the panna cotta into a saucer or eat right from the ramekin.

Using a clear glass also works well and looks inviting. I would suggest using a thick-walled glass though since it will spend some time chilling in the refrigerator.

Some tips for and an amiable experience

Grated ube halaya is needed for the recipe. Since ube halaya is somewhat soft, you need to freeze ube halaya wrapped in cling film until firm.

You can use powdered gelatin if you can’t get hold of gelatin sheets. If your using powdered gelatin, Stir in the powder in water until it blooms. Heat the mixture in a microwave until it turns to liquid then mix in with the cream. 2 sheets of gelatin is equivalent to 1 tsp of powdered gelatin.
