A posset you ask. What is a posset?
Posset (noun). A posset (also spelled poshote, poshotte) was originally a British hot drink of milk curdled with wine or ale, often spiced, which was popular from medieval times to the 19th century.
Since then a posset has evolved to become a thick creamy dessert, flavoured usually with lemon. This version of a posset uses a mere three ingredients which results in a delicious tangy dessert, perfect for the summer. Imagine sitting in the sun, languidly licking a spoonful of lush lemony goodness. What could be better?
- p/s. Best served with acidic berries. Not only is the colour contrast magnificent, the berries also helps balance out the sweetness of the posset.
