Lemon Posset & Strawberry Jam

So Kim found this recipe and wanted me to try making it… Challenge accepted!! ( yes I’ve been watching too much How I met your mother)

What I will be making is an English dessert called Lemon Posset and to jazz it up were going to make homemade vanilla strawberry jam.


  • 2 1/2 cups Double cream (Heavy cream)
  • Sugar (2/3 cup Posset) (1 cup jam)
  • 3 lemons
  • 1 Vanilla pod
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries

Pour the cream and 2/3 of sugar into a sauce pan and slowly boil. Simmer for 3 minutes and remove from heat

Zest and juice the lemons into the cream mixture and stir well. Pour the cream into ramekins or glasses and allow it to set for at least 4 hours in the fridge.

Halve the vanilla pod and chunk into the pan with the strawberries, a tiny splash of water and the remaining sugar (1 cup) heat to dissolve the sugar and stir the strawberries  a little, then boil for 15 minutes  before transferring to a clean jar allowing to cool in the fridge. Top the set lemon posset with vanilla strawberry jam.

Serve and enjoy

Serves 6

    There is no such thing as too much HIMYM! 😀

    Anyway, that sounds yum and looks fab. It could be a lush addition to a homewarming party/tea. 🙂 (Mental note to self. We’re moving soon; can’t wait.)

      And it was yummy, very lemony but still, I’m glad she tried out the recipe.
