How to make Lime and Orange Posset With Strawberries - For 2

  1. Before we begin, make sure to keep the glasses/jars ready. Also, keep a fine mesh strainer and a bowl ready to strain the dessert.
  2. Pour the cream in a steel saucepan and heat it on low. Heat the cream till its hot to the touch and you can see bubbles around the periphery of the saucepan.
  3. Remove from the heat and cover with a lid to keep it warm.
  4. In another saucepan, combine both the juices and add powdered sugar. Stir to moisten the sugar.
  5. Grate the zest of an orange into the juice.
  6. Heat the juice with the sugar on low flame. Heat it just till the boiling point and take it off the flame.
  7. Now, stir in the hot cream into the juice till it becomes homogeneous and immediately pass the cream mixture through the strainer.
  8. Pour the cream mixture immediately in the waiting dessert glasses/jars and make sure not to stir it again or the dessert may not set properly.
  9. Leave some space above the dessert in the jar to fill them with strawberries.
  10. Refrigerate the posset for at least 4 hours and then later wrap it with cling film and let it set for sometime or may be overnight.
  11. Take strawberries in a small bowl and sprinkle with some powdered sugar on top. Let it sit for about half an hour so that strawberries will release its juices.
  12. After its set, top the posset with strawberries and a sprig of mint.
  13. Serve Chilled.

My Tip:

1. Be sure to take really thick bottomed and heavy saucepan for heating the cream. 2. Use cream with a higher fat percentage for making your posset more luxurious. 3. This can also be used as a cake topping.
