Lime Posset

This lime posset is ridiculously easy to make, immensely creamy with a refreshing twist from the lime.

What is a posset? Let me explain, a posset is everything that a pudding should be. A posset is made with double cream, sugar, and the juice of a fruit, usually lemons. Most Possets I’ve seen are lemon, but I really fancied lime, so why not!

The mix is cooked gently until the sugar dissolves so it sets. The texture of a posset is amazing – so silky smooth and rich too. As this desert is rich and creamy its works a treat with my shortbread biscuits and will impress any dinner party guest.

As Valentines Day is fast approaching I am sharing both this lime posset recipe and my shortbread biscuit recipe. A perfect pairing but equally delicious on there own. They say the way to a man’s heart is there stomach, well isn’t that the case for women too!
