White Asparagus Panna Cotta

The asparagus season is just fantastic! Almost every week we eat about 2 kilogramms, usually together with a sauce for dinner. Therefore, I am a bit behind my plan with making different meals with asparagus, because when I would go for it, there is no more left.
Anyway, this time I managed to save some for a little experiment and finally, I could preapre the panna cotta. Its consistency is silky and you can taste both the kefir and the asparagus. On top there is a translucent white asparagus jelly with slices of green asparagus, and it is served with green asparagus spears coated with parma ham and morels.

350 g white asparagus
200 ml cream
200 ml kefir
2 gelatine sheets

Peel asparagus and cut in 1 cm thick slices. Cook it together with the cream for about 20 minutes over low heat. Soak gelatine. Sieve, and set the asparagus aside, this can be used for preparing a a soup for example. Stir gelatine into the hot cream, add kefir and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Pour it into glasses and leave it to cool for at least 3 hours.
