  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons gelatin
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Citrus Compote:

  • 1 orange
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 blood orange
  • 1 - 2 Tablespoons honey
  • fresh mint


  1. In a medium sauce pan, add 1 cup of the heavy cream.  Sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons of powdered gelatin over the cream.  Let mixture stand undisturbed for 5 minutes.  After 5 minutes stir the gelatin into the cream and place over medium-low heat.  Gently stir until the mixture is hot and gelatin has dissolved.  Add the remaining 1/2 cup cream and 1/2 cup sugar.  Continue to stir over heat until the sugar has dissolved.  Add 1 1/2 cups buttermilk.  Continue to heat, but do not let the mixture boil.  Heat until mixture is hot to the touch.  Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.  Ladle into jars or ramekins.  Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

To make Citrus Compote:

  1. Peel and section the citrus.  Cut into bite size pieces.  Add honey and gently stir.  Cut fresh mint into fine a fine chiffonade.  Let sit for 30 minutes for flavors to marry.  Can be made a few hours in advance.
