Lime Posset with fruits

What is a Syllabub

The Syllabub is a thick drink made of milk or cream, curdled by the addition of wine, or other acids, and often sweetened and flavored. The dessert is typically made of whipped cream, wine or sherry, sugar and lemon juice. The Posset looks a lot like the Syllabub.

How to make Lime Posset

In a medium saucepan, combine cream, sugar and the lime zest. Bring it to a boil over medium heat. Continue boiling, stirring often until sugar is totally dissolved. Continue to boil until mixture is reduced to 2 cups, about 8-12 minutes.

Remove mixture from heat and stir in the lime juice. Let it cool for 5 minutes. After, strain through a fine-mesh sieve. Discard the lime zest. Divide the mixture into 6 individual glasses, jars or ramekins.

Refrigerate uncovered for 3 to 6 hours until set. Once the mixture has chilled for 3 to 6 hours each portion can be covered with plastic lids. You can keep the Lime Posset in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Serve the Lime Posset with fresh berries.
