Push the boundaries with these glorious treats!

Lemon posset

By Adrian Martin


Serves 4-6 | Prep 15 mins plus marinating | Cook 5 mins | Calories 189 (per posset)

600ml (1pt) cream

150g (5½oz) caster sugar

1 vanilla pod grated zest and juice of 1 lemon

1 large passion fruit


2 tbsp crème de cassis

1 tsp blackberry balsamic

vinegar (or ordinary


1 tsp vanilla extract

250g (9oz) mixed strawberries and raspberries


4-6 mint sprigs

1 Place the cream in a pan with the sugar, vanilla pod, lemon zest and juice. Cut the passion fruit in half, scoop out the seeds and pulp, then pass them through a sieve. Add the passion fruit juice to the pan, bring to the boil and boil for 1-2 minutes.

2 Leave the mixture to cool slightly. Have a taste just to make sure that the mixture isn’t too bitter. You can adjust the bitterness by adding extra sugar at this stage. Pass the mixture through a sieve to remove any bits and the vanilla pod.

3 Pour into 4-6 glasses, depending on their size. Chill for at least 1-2 hours, but overnight is best.

4 Pour the crème de cassis, blackberry balsamic vinegar and vanilla extract over the mixed berries in a container or bowl. Cover with clingfilm and shake. Leave for 1-2 hours, or overnight if possible, to infuse.

5 To plate, place the posset-filled glasses on a serving plate, spoon over some of the marinated berries and top with a mint sprig.
