How To Make Lemon Posset
Start with juicing the lemons. Cut them in halves, scoop out the insides and pass through a strainer to discard the hard bits. That way, you will get beautiful lemon shells for serving.
Now, let’s make the lemon posset. You’ll need double cream alongside lemon zest and sugar. Thickened or heavy cream is also perfect in this recipe but double cream is the best option. You can also add more or less sugar to adjust the sweetness.
Place all these ingredients in a saucepan and bring it to a simmer. And remember, no boiling. Remove the mixture from heat and stir in lemon juice. At this stage, set aside to cool for about 10 minutes. Pour this mixture into lemon shells or small containers and refrigerate until thick before serving.
