For the Apple Compote

  • 2 small apples - peeled and finely chopped. About 8oz / 200g when prepared
  • 30 g golden syrup - (2 tbsp)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tsp water

For the Posset

  • 284 ml double cream - 1 pint carton
  • Juice of 1 lemon - reserve 2 slices for garnish before juicing
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 75 g sugar - (3oz)


  • Place the ingredients for the compote into a small saucepan and gently simmer until the apple is soft.   Allow to cool (pouring something hot into a cold glass could easily crack it) and divide between 4 wine glasses.    I use a jam funnel to ensure the fruit lands at the bottom of the glass rather than sliding down the sides.
  • Put the cream into a medium sized pan and bring to the boil.  Add the juice and  sugar and simmer for a minute or two stirring well.   Remove from the heat.   Allow to cool, to avoid cracking the glasses,  and then pour over the apple compote.   Chill to set for a few hours in the fridge before serving.
  • For an extra indulgence pour a little more cream over the top of the possets before serving.
