Lemon and Lime Possets
made with clotted cream and lemon curd.
A Posset is a delightful old fashioned word for a cooked cream dessert..
This is such a simple dish to make, also elegant, delicious, and a perfect choice for so many occasions. .As it is cream,sugar and citrus juice it is so simple to make. I made mine with a twist and used English Clotted cream and Double..( Heavy) .Double cream can also be used on its own..it is also a very rich dish and a small serving will suffice.. when the cream had cooled I twirled through some Homemade lemon curd, which gave it an additional hit of citrus..

600ml Cream.. I used one pot of clotted cream and combined with double cream to make the total amount..Just double cream can also be used.
150g Caster Sugar
I lemon juice and zest.. unwaxed fruit preferably or scrub fruits well before zesting..
1 lime juice and zest..
2 dessert spoons Lemon curd
In a saucepan , combine the cream and sugar, and bring to the boil, then simmer for 3 to 4 minutes.. Remove from Heat and add the juices and zests of the lemon and lime. stir well..Let cool in the pan, and then add the Lemon curd and stir it through..
Pour into small glasses or ramekin type dishes.. leave in fridge for a few hours…I often leave overnight ready for the next day
This is a very rich desert..so I suggest small dishes.
A very easy prepare ahead, elegant desert..beautiful on it own or with a little accompaniment of a small madeleine or shortbread or chocolate wafer..something along those lines..
Enjoy and don’t worry about the calories for once..
