Lemon Posset



Something sweet for someone sweet. I’m sure you can see I’m feeling a little cheeky-don’t mind me. When I got home today and threw myself on bed thanking God that it was Friday, I knew I deserved a little treat, as it has been an extremely long week full of work and entertaining. One of my friends from America visited us here inLondon so I have been playing the good host, travelling, sightseeing, going shopping etc, add work into the equation I’m sure you can understand why I’m exhausted and ending my week with something sweet. I went for something with a little tang- a lemon posset. It only requires 15 minutes to prep so for me it was the perfect Friday evening dessert. I hope you try it, if you do please use the hashtag #inheatherskitchen on all social media sites so I can check it out. See you soon x
