Preparation

  1. Place the coconut cream, vanilla, agar agar and white chocolate buttons in a saucepan.
  2. Bring almost to the boil (this will take about 7-8 minutes), then remove from heat.
  3. Keep stirring throughout to prevent the cream from burning to the bottom of the pan or boiling over.
  4. Reduce heat if it looks like the cream is going to boil over.  Pour the cream into 4 little ramequins or cups. Set aside to cool, then refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  5. In a small saucepan, simmer the syrup and peach slices for 5 minutes until the fruit is tender and has soaked up some of the syrup.
  6. Carefully turn over the panacotta cups onto saucers. You may need to let them come to room temperature or wriggle them loose with the tip of a knife. Take your time to do this. Or just eat straight from the cup.
  7. Pour over the peach syrup and serve immediately.
