lemon posset: easy peasy lemon squeezy

March 27, 2008


Planning a dinner party? Looking for a dessert that’s quick to prepare, and cheap? Then why not try this idea. Heat some cream and sugar, squeeze in some lemon juice, then pour into some glasses and chill.

When you add the lemon juice, it thickens the cream, producing a rich, tangy dessert. To serve, top with sliced strawberries or raspberries, or put the glasses on plates with shortbread biscuits.


Serves 4

340ml double cream
80g caster sugar
juice of 2 lemons

Heat the cream and sugar gently until the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice. Leave to cool for a few minutes and then pour into your serving glasses. When completely cool, pop the glasses in the fridge and allow to set.
