Lime Posset with Fresh Raspberries
If I have said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times – I love the warmer weather and all of the delicious fruits and veggies that come with it … well, except lima beans! Y’all can have those, I’ll take everything else though!
When I lived in the Midwest I looked forward to June because I knew the wild berries would be getting ready to be picked! Like many folks, we had our secret spots for finding all of the good stuff! Every year we would bring buckets and buckets full of ripe red raspberries and blackberries home!
Living here in Phoenix, I don’t have any secret raspberry picking spots …. I don’t even think raspberries grow here to be honest with you! At least, not in this part of Arizona. From what I hear, the northern part of the state is vastly different and I’m hoping to see for myself soon! However, I know I can count on my friends at Driscoll’s Berries to always have the freshest and most delicious berries at my local supermarket!
The other day I was wanting a light and refreshing dessert for after dinner and I ran across a recipe for Lemon Posset …. I had never heard of posset before, but it sounded like it was a creamier curd-type recipe, kind of like a custard or pudding. Reading through the recipe it almost sounded too easy, but I loved the idea of a sweet and tart recipe to pair with my fresh Driscoll’s Raspberries!
Let me tell you, this dessert did not disappoint! Since I only had limes on hand, that’s what I used and it looked kind plain in the serving bowl – so I added some fun green lime zest with bright pink raspberries. Isn’t this the most gorgeous dessert ever?! It looks fancy, but let me assure you it is super easy! The hardest part is watching the pan to make sure it doesn’t boil over! I can’t wait to try this with other flavor combinations!
