Pretty in Pink Dessert: Pomegranate Posset

by hettychatters

Pomegranates are the most beautifully bejeweled inviting looking fruit you could ever wish for. Their downsides are that they are so fussy to eat, and don’t have such a strong flavor apart from being wonderfully sweet.
So when I looked at the Pom’s in my fruit crate and decided I would do something more productive with them, I was focusing on their glistening seeds and forgot about their downsides, easily  distracted one might say, alas this simple pudding was a hit, as well as looking oh so pretty in pink, which for me was the main objective!

300ml double cream
Juice and seeds of 1 pomegranate
Juice of half/whole a lemon, depending on how you feel
70g caster sugar
For Serving: crushed biscuits of choice, a few reserved seeds and a dollop of creme fraiche

Put all ingredients into a non-stick saucepan, and bring up the heat, stirring constantly until bubbling, keep bubbling for 2-3 mins, then remove from heat and pour into serving method of choice. Leave in the fridge for at least a couple of hours until set. Decorate to serve or serve with biscuits.

The pomegranate was successful I felt, a subtle sweet flavor, and the seeds gave lovely little jewels of juice all the way through.
