Anyone got a good recipe for coconut posset? I had some in a very posh restaurant on Friday and it absolutely rocked, so now I want to know how to make it.

It came with a very sharp lime jelly and was HEAVEN.

As far as I know posset sets due to some sort of reaction between the cream & the acid (lemon or lime juice normally). I don't see how it could work without the acid (assuming there was no lime in the posset itself, just in the jelly)

Are you sure it wasn't a panna cotta?

They all seem to need some sort of citrus.

There are 2 approaches above - the lime one is traditional with desiccated coconut, the lemon one uses coconut cream and is vegan

It definitely wasn't a panna cotta (just a little too soft), and you may be right, it may not even have been a true posset (but was called that for want of a better name).

The BBC one looks most likely. Thanks CDtaylormats - I think a fair amount of experimenting will be going on over the next few days........
