Lemon Posset

  • 600ml double cream
  • 150gm caster sugar
  • 240ml lemon juice
  • Serves eight depending on size of ramekins. Freezes well

Put cream in a pan and add sugar.
Slowly bring to boil stirring all the time.
Bubble for 3 mins stirring all time.
Remove from heat and add lemon juice and this will make mixture thicken slightly.
Cool slightly and then pour into small ramekins.
Cover and chill for 2 hours.
Easiest to pour into a jug and then dishes…cleaner!
Serve with cats tongue biscuits and a dust of icing sugar or in a sweet pastry shell as a filling.
Very rich so a small amount is fine!
