The key to making these easy desserts is to soften the unflavored gelatin in cold water before dissolving in a hot liquid.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 (3-inch) orange peel strip, white part removed
  • 3 regular-size jasmine tea bags
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 2 cups whole buttermilk
  • 1/8 teaspoon table salt
  • Berry Sauce

How to Make It

  1. Sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, combine cream and next 3 ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Split vanilla bean; scrape seeds into cream mixture, and place bean in mixture.

  3. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 5 minutes or just until mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat; immediately stir in gelatin mixture until smooth. Let stand 5 minutes.

  4. Discard tea bags and vanilla bean. Stir in buttermilk and salt. Strain into a heatproof glass measuring cup. Divide among 8 (6-oz.) glasses. Cover and chill 24 hours. Serve with Berry Sauce.
