Mānuka mīere Panna Cotta with Mandarin


  • 1 Tbsp paura tetepe (gelatine powder)
  • 2 Tbsp wai (water)
  • 2 C kirīmi (cream)
  • 1 kiri manarini (mandarin peel of a whole mandarin)
  • 2 Tbsp mīere mānuka (@comvita_nz mānuka honey)
  • 3 Tbsp huka one (caster sugar)
  • 1/2 C miraka tepe (yogurt, full fat and unsweetened)
  • 1 Tbsp wanira (vanilla with seeds, if you can)
  1. Add the paura tetepe and wai to a small bowl. Wharanuhia - mix to combine. Leave to bloom  for five minutes. 
  2. Add the kirīmi, mīere mānuka, kiri manarini and bloomed gelatine to a pot. 
  3. Place it on to medium heat and stir gently to bring it to just under a simmer, you don’t want a  hard boil here, it just needs to dissolve the mīere mānuka and tetepe (gelatine). 
  4. Once simmering, remove from the heat and leave for ten minutes for the flavours to infuse. 
  5. After 10 minutes, remove the kiri manarini. Pour a quarter of the cooled mixture into a bowl  with the miraka tepe. Stir until smooth. Add the remaining cream and stir in wanira.
  6. Add to 4 x 3/4 C capacity (or 6 1/2 C capacity) ramekins or tea cups. Refrigerate for three  hours to set or you can leave up to three days. Make your waihuka manarini.
