Posset I like that word it has a nice ring to it, I looked it up and a posset was a British hot drink of milk curdled with ale or wine hmmm not so nice I do not like the word curdled. The drink was popular in the medieval times. Now we commonly know a posset as a cream and lemon desert similar to a syllabub.
A posset is super easy to make its literally boiled sugar and cream that’s been set in the fridge. I added a couple of extra elements to the possets, a lemon curd and a pistachio thin. It makes the process a bit longer but its still easy. You can make the lemon curd in advance or if you like you could of course buy some. I think a biscuit of some form is important it provides a contrast in textures and of course works as a great posset scoop.The pistachio works well with the raspberry and lemon but you could make whatever sort of biscuit you fancy, a shortbread would be nice, if pistachios your thing though like me then I have another pistachio biscuit recipe you might like too.
Although these are raspberry possets you still need to add some lemon juice so the posssets set. The raspberry adds a lovely sweetness and of cousre a glorious pink colour. They look so cute, little pots of raspberry cream and they taste heavenly. I think they would make a wonderful offering for your loved one this valentines day.
