How to make Lemon Posset
TIP: For fresh lemon flavour in the recipe, cut the sugar to 1 cup and add the zest of one lemon. Serve it in small antique sundae glasses topped with a splash of cream, 3 raspberries and a sprig of mint.
A posset was originally a traditional British hot drink made of milk curdled with wine or ale, often spiced, and used as a remedy.
The word "posset" is mostly used now for a cold set dessert based on the 16th-century variant of the drink, containing cream and lemon, similar to syllabub.
