A Festive Make-Ahead Custard
Panna cotta is a wonderfully simple dessert, but it can be a little bland. When you add buttermilk to the mix, though, the pudding takes on a zesty, slightly tart flavor that pairs nicely with berries. This recipe from The Animal Farm Buttermilk Cookbook has just five ingredients (plus raspberries, strawberries and/or blueberries as garnishes) and tastes even better after setting for at least 3 hours—so you can make it in the morning and serve it later in the day.
