"My spice shipment just arrived. Oh my gosh! Your spice blends are nuts! I could sit and eat them out of the jar with a spoon! I have been put on a extremely low sodium diet and am allergic to garlic, so my past enjoyment of cooking had disappeared into bland, boring, plain dishes. I had begun to dread mealtime. There just isn't much out there in the non-salt spice blend category to inspire me. Not anymore! Just WOW!"
This makes a wonderful fall harvest or holiday feast dessert. For a variation, try substituting Mulling Spices with Chai Spices.
For panna cotta: Combine milk and gelatin in a small bowl and set aside. Fill muslin bag with Mulling Spices and tie securely. In a saucepan, add cream, sugar and muslin bag of spices. Stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in softened gelatin mixture. Then return to heat and cook for 1 min. Remove muslin bag of spices and pour mixture into six small bowls. Let cool and then refrigerate until set, or overnight. For apples: Peel, core and dice apples and place in a saucepan with butter and all sugars. Stir over low heat until apples are tender when poked with a fork. Remove from heat and add splash of lemon juice. Cool to room temperature and serve over chilled panna cotta.
