This posset is light, creamy and zesty – exactly what you need after a heavy meal. It would be perfect for a dinner party or even just a night in as it can chill in the fridge until you need it.
What you’ll need:
- 1 pint of double cream
- 2 lemons, juice and zest
- 130g caster sugar
What you’ll need to do:
- Pour the cream in a saucepan with the sugar and heat until it is just below boiling point.
- Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon and zest, whisk for 30 seconds or so until it thickens slightly.
- Pour into ramekins or dessert glasses. Cover with cling film and chill in the fridge for 3 hours or overnight.
- Serve with shortbread biscuits or ginger snaps.
