This honey posset recipe is my go to entertaining dessert because they require no special ingredients, can be made ahead and they look so fancy! We won't tell anyone how insanely simple they are.
Serves: 6-8 servings
  • 1 quart (4 cups) cream (heavy or regular whipping cream both work)
  • ½ cup honey
  • ⅓ cup lemon juice
  • Juice of ½ lime (about 1 tablespoon juice)
  • 4-5 lavender sprigs (be sure they are not sprayed with pesticides)
  1. In a medium saucepan bring cream and honey to boil over medium-high heat. Stir continually until honey is fully combined. Boil for 3 full minutes stirring continually. You may need to lower heat to prevent boiling over. Remove from stovetop.
  2. All lemon and lime juice and stir.
  3. Mix in lavender sprigs so they are fully submerged and allow to steep for 10-20 minutes (to intensity of lavender flavor desired).
  4. Remove sprigs and pour into ramekins. Top with a few tiny flowers.
  5. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill, minimum of 2 hours. You can also pop them in the freezer for 30-40 minutes if you are running late and they will be decently set, but I prefer overnight to let the flavors meld.
