Panna Cotta is a classic sweet Italian dessert. The unique flavour of the Wattleseed adds a beautiful coffee and hazelnut flavour and the charred pineapple compliments this with a bitter tart taste. Also, the combination of the chilled panna cotta with the warm pineapple produces an amazing sensation in your mouth.
Wattleseed comes from the famous Wattle Tree, or Acacia tree as it's otherwise known. They look like a small shrub and have been in use for centuries, both for a nutritious food source and even for medicinal purposes. Wattleseed is very good for you. It has a high nutrient value that is up there with products such as wheat and rice, and it is even competing with some meats in protein and energy. Typically, the wattleseed is used from the dry ground form and this is how it is most commonly bought. Depending on the variety, wattleseed will vary in strength and colour but will have a distinctive coffee-like flavour with hints of chocolate and hazelnuts.
