St George's day lemon posset

There was a gathering at R's tonight and I was helping do some of the cooking. I was on pudding duty and to celebrate St George's day I made a couple of traditional English puddings: treacle tart and lemon posset.

[Whilst searching for inspiration I came across a great site, Traditional English Puddings, which looks like it's not longer being updated, unfortunately]

The lemon posset was so simple yet wonderful, you must make it:

Lemon posset recipe (serves 6)

600ml double cream
Juice and and zest of two lemons
140g caster sugar

1. Gently bring the cream and sugar to the boil and simmer gently for 3mins.
2. Take off the heat and whisk in lemon juice and zest.
3. Pour into 6 ramekins and chill.
