A posset is a very simple, set cooked cream — an English version of panna cotta.

Possets are so easy to make and they taste sensational. They’re great served with fresh fruit to counter the sweet creaminess. A classic posset is made with lemon juice, as you need the acidity to set the cream. You can also use lime, as in this recipe, or a combination of lemon, lime and orange.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
750ml thickened cream
3 limes, zested and juiced
or 1 lemon, zested and juiced
175g honey
1 mango, finely diced
6 mint sprigs

Method

  1. Heat the cream in a saucepan to 75°C. Remove from the heat and cool slightly to 65°C.
  2. Add the lime zest, juice and honey to the cream and mix well to dissolve the honey; you should notice that the mixture thickens slightly.
  3. Allow to cool, then pour into six cups or glasses. Place the possets on a tray, cover each with plastic wrap and leave to set in the refrigerator for about 4 hours.
  4. Serve topped with the mango and garnished with a mint sprig.
