    A member of the rose family, raspberries have a wonderfully intense, sweet taste, and many…

Method

  1. Put the cream and sugar in a small saucepan. Heat until just boiling, then boil vigorously for 2½ mins, while stirring constantly. Turn off the heat, stir in the lime juice and most of the zest and divide between 2 small pots or glasses. Chill for at least 2 hrs (or overnight if you’re making ahead), until set.

  2. To serve top each posset with a few raspberries and the remaining zest.

Such an easy dessert to make, my friends love it - It's my go-to pudding for when I have people round now. It's rich but quite citrusy which keeps it light - YUM.

Delicious dessert that's always a winner. Half lemon half lime works really well. Shortbread completes it.

really lovely but I used less sugar the second time as it was a bit sweet.

Second time in a week - I think I'll allow half a lime for a tablespoon juice, as always have some left over. I love making things in advance - however, this time I put the raspberries (frozen) and the lime zest on top before putting them in the fridge - will let you know if it's a disaster or not!

Not bad as a fresh winter desert either! I made almond shortbread and the combination worked really well.

I made this last night as a "light" dessert to follow a huge Mexican feast!! It was lovely, very citrussy- but still quite sweet. Would make again, although next time will grate the zest (used a zester and the long strips weren't good).

Very easy and very tasty. I used lime and lemon which worked well. They are quite sweet so you don't need much per person. I served them in espresso cups with a little biscuit on the side. Went down very well with my guests.

I added a ginger biscuit base like you would for a cheesecake and drizzled raspberry coulis over top it was lovely.
