Lemon and Cherry Posset

A Cherry Posset - no we have no idea what it is either - but it tastes fantastic

Ingredients

  • 500g cherries halved and stones removed
  • 170g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp Amaretto
  • 500ml double cream
  • juice of 2-3 lemons
  • grated zest of 2 lemons
  • dark chocolate

Instructions

  1. Save a few cherries for decoration, Halve and stone remainder. Heat with 25g of the sugar until sugar is dissolved and the juices run. Add the Amaretto and cook until liquid is reduced and syrupy. Allow to cool.
  2. Add cream to remaining sugar and slowly bring to the boil. Stir constantly to dissolve. Boil for 3 minutes continuing to stir.
  3. Remove from heat and add the juice and zest. Allow to cool for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  4. Remove both from fridge 15 minutes before serving. Divide the cherry mixture between glasses and top with the lemon posset mixture. Grate over a little chocolate and garnish with the retained cherries. Serve with dessert biscuits
  5. Makes 6.

    That posset does look delicious! I bought 5 kilograms of cherries at the market today in order to make some cherry jam tonight, but I might just use some for posset instead!

    I’m afraid to say that the posset looked nicer than it tasted. Although it did look so beautiful, it was hard not to.
