Ingredients

  • 150g caster sugar

  • 500ml double cream

  • 75ml lemon juice

Method

  1. Put the cream and caster sugar in a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Lower the heat and leave to bubble for about 3 minutes, stirring from time to time. Reduce the heat so that the mixture doesn't boil over, and let it bubble enthusiastically for about 3 minutes, stirring regularly.
  3. Remove from the heat, stir in the lemon juice and leave to settle. 4. Pour into four small wine glasses or cups and leave to cool. Refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.

Handy Hint

Serve with home-made shortbread/brandy snaps if you have time.

    It is really simple, really easy, and tastes incredible - very rich though, you don't need much. A proper old English dessert too (well, it wouldn't be modern with a name like 'posset', now would it?)
