Posset a creamy dessert, originally from 14th & 15th Century Europe, was made with ‘Sweet Wine’ for the Noblemen and ‘Ale’ if you were from a poor family. Until the 19th Century Possets were the celebration toast at weddings for all levels of society. Made in a ‘Posset Pot’ rather like a small tea pot with a spout. The sweet wine or ale was drunk through the ‘pipe’ before the rest of the rich dessert was spooned out. Try our modern take on this quick and easy dish.
