Lemon posset is a deliciously creamy lemon dessert that showcases this beautiful citrus fruit. This dish is quick to prepare and can be made ahead of time, ready to serve to guests straight from the fridge when ready.
100mlfreshly squeezed lemon juice(approx 2 large lemons)
Finely grate the lemon zest and set aside.
Juice each of the lemons, passing the juice through a fine sieve into a saucepan.
Now add the cream, sugar and lemon zest to a saucepan and place over a medium heat. Gently dissolve the sugar and bring the mixture to the boil, then turn down and simmer the cream for 3 minutes, it should start to thicken.
Pour the cream through a fine sieve to remove the lemon zest, this will result in a silky smooth posset. [Note: You can omit this step if you would prefer to leave the lemon zest in the dessert - it is entirely optional].
Pour the liquid into individual serving dishes and once cooled, cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours until the posset has set. Take directly from the fridge when ready to serve.
This is a great make-ahead dessert, we made this the previous day and left in the fridge until ready to eat. We served this dessert with our lemon butter biscuits.
