  1. Nice to hear the Irish accent coming through. Possets are always absurd, I think.

  2. There's no way cream, sugar, and the juice of two lemons could not be good. I'm sure it was heavenly.

  3. Yes my children and I will love that lemony possum thing.

    Do you know we have baby ring tailed possums living in our garden? The cat (before he was transformed into an Inside Cat) ocassionally stole them from their nests and brought them inside to play. They are very cute but better alive than dead, of course.

  6. Yes indeed I do want to try them myself.

    Unfortunately GG is not a lemon lover (??) can they be made in other flavors.

    Or am I just being greedy?

    1. Oh yes, other citrus fruit would work I am sure. Try lime or orange ot if you can find them how about blood orange?

    2. Sue's blood orange idea sounds great, and how about rosewater or some dark, dark chocolate? They would lack the acid taste to counteract the cream, but we must please GG.

  7. Lemon desserts are my favorite, and even if they weren't I would try it so I could say "posset".

    1. Fine homegrown lemon oneupmanship there, Felicity.

  9. Hello Mise:
    We adore all things lemony, most often choosing a lemon pudding when eating out at restaurants, and so we are certain that this is absolutely delicious. And it does look very good in your red polka dot pots.

  10. I'd like to try it but don't have time today. I am reading your entire œuvre and have only reached August 2009. Did you sack Beatrice?

    1. It didn't seem right to continue to employ her, Lucille, amid the national austerity. It is very good of you to read the old stuff.

  11. It's gorgeous isn't it? So glad you liked it Mise and it looks fab in your lucky cups.

  12. I have been tossing, turning and drooling most of the night after reading Sue's post on possets and possums just before falling asleep. I only have ONE lemon left in the house. Screams of unbridled frustration resounding in central France.

    Yes, I will be making a posset too very, very soon. If you like that sort of wicked thing, Mise, you should check out the recipe book "Good Old Fashioned Puddings".

  13. That looks easy and somewhat yum. I will make it as soon as I wipe the image of baby milk from my mind.

    Mise, you may be freaked out to know that I dreamt of you last night. You were even more glamorous than in your new pic. You and Scottish Husband were hotshot designers, in a huge, but cosily ramshackle house, feeding the football team every Sunday. I helped, by peeling one potato. Top guest. I can't remember, but I'm sure my clothes toned beautifully.

    1. That one potato made all the difference, Speccy. You know the way you'd sometimes be weary and you'd sigh gently as you glanced out the ramshackle window at yet more footballers showing up for their Boeuf à la Bourguignonne and all you'd want is for one single kind soul to peel a potato.

  14. Looks divine and nothing like a possum. Some people, I have heard, make a similar dessert with a melted snickers bar mixed into the boiling cream. Sounds terrible I think.

  15. Mmmmm Yum It also looks lovely in your red and white polka dot bowls!!

  16. I had forgotten you could eat posset - I thought it was to regurgitate small amounts of milk i.e. baby sick.

    The connection with baby regurgitation is, of course, the curdled milk. On balance, I think I prefer your kind of posset.

    Sorry to lower the tone.

  17. You're so right, as always Mise. It looks so very delicious. xx

  18. Ooh looks nice, I like the dish!

  19. Such a fancy name...but I think the kids will enjoy calling it Lemony Possum...I'm going to try it on my nephews this weekend, two more have come to town, they'll love it!!
    Wish I had such cute red pots to serve it in though...then they'd call it Lemony Polka Dot Possom Pots.
    Thanks for the link...
    xo J~

  20. Adorable winnings! Wish I could stop by to taste.

  21. Googling "posset" (Aren't these the creatures that often get hit on the road? How are they with lemon?)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Trouble is Mise, I haven't got those lucky red polka dot dishes, so mine probably won't turn out so well. XXXX

  23. Thanks for the link to the recipe - one I will be trying. Especially after my recent attempt to make Lemon Curd where some of the egg yolks managed to cook in perfect circles. A bit of straining salvaged it, and I couldn't believe how good it was with meringues.

  24. ROFL :)))) @ Speccy's dream. Adorable polka dot pot I must say!
