Lou’s Lemon & Passionfruit Posset Recipe

Originally Possets were purely medicinal…a  drink of milk thickened with wine or ale and spices (similar to eggnog). Then over the centuries, the word posset came to mean a simple pudding. In this recipe, the acidity in the lemon juice causes the cream to thicken when chilled.

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 litre cream
  • 250g sugar
  • Juice of 5 lemons
  • 2 x tblsp passionfruit pulp


Bring cream & sugar to boil for 3 mins.
Remove from the heat & add lemon juice & passionfruit pulp.
Stir for 20 seconds then pour into *ramekins
Chill over night.
Serve with shortbread.

* You can be creative with the style of individual serving dishes you choose. Maybe they could suit the style or relaxed nature of the meal… wine glasses seemed to be a trend back in the 80s!
