Food for friends


I made Lemon Posset with Jo this weekend. Soooo good. I had it at St John's on Monday where JD and I had lunch after our visa interview. I love that restaurant and so now does JD. I had the bone marrow again, then lamb sweetbread and lemon posset for dessert. JD had spleen then cured fried tongue (mmm with beetroots) and baked chocolate mousse for dessert. We could barely walk afterwards, so so full.
Anyway, lemon posset is super simple to make:
250ml double cream
150ml sugar
Mix and boil for 3 min. Set aside for 10 to cool a bit.
Add in juice of 2 lemons, and pour into whatever you want to serve in. We added some raspberries as well cause it was pretty and taste nice. Cill for 2-3 hours and then enjoy.
If you dont love sour then maybe have less lemon. But I say embrace the sour! I am planning to make this for my first guests who are coming to see me!

Absolutely. We should also form a St John appreciation society.
