  3. Gradually add gelatin mixture to the saucepan, stirring until gelatin is dissolved completely. Stir in mascarpone until smooth. Spoon cream mixture into eight 4-ounce greased ramekins. Cool to room temperature. Cover ramekins loosely with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until set.

Mixed Berry Coulis:

  1. Combine the berries, sugar and water in a large saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Cook and stir for 4-5 minutes or until berries are softened. Cool slightly.
  2. Process berry mixture in a blender or with an immersion blender until smooth. Pour mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a large bowl; discard solids. Stir in lime juice. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  3. Gently run the tip of a thin knife around the top edges of each ramekin. Dip ramekins, one at a time, into warm water for 5 seconds. Invert ramekins onto serving plates. Serve panna cotta with coulis and berries.
