Coconut Panna Cotta
  1. First, make the fruit topping: wash, trim and quarter the figs. Cover them with the honey, stir and let them marinate for at least 1 hour or up to 1 day.
  2. Add the gelatin and cold water to a small bowl. Stir to dissolve the gelatin, then let it rest for 5 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, in a 2-quart saucepan, heat the coconut milk, honey and salt. Taste the mixture and adjust it to your taste - more honey, more salt, perhaps a little vanilla extract? Whatever your taste buds desire.
  4. Bring the coconut milk almost to a boil - steam will rise quickly from the surface and you might see a few bubbles around the edge of the pan.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the gelatin to the coconut mixture and whisk vigorously.
  6. Pour the mixture evenly into two glasses, cover and let set in the fridge for at least 4 hours or up to 48 hours in advance. Serve with the honey-soaked figs.
