Mandarin Orange Posset

  • Author: Misfits Market




  1. Using a microplane, grate ½ tablespoon zest from 1 to 2 mandarins. Slice mandarins in half vertically, then use a spoon to remove the inside of the mandarin and juice the flesh through a fine-mesh sieve. Measure out 2 tablespoons of mandarin juice and save the rest for future use. (We used the rest to make this cocktail!)
  2. In a small saucepan, bring heavy cream, sugar, salt, and mandarin zest to a gentle simmer over medium-low heat. Continue to simmer, whisking occasionally for about 5 minutes. Whisk in mandarin juice, lemon juice,and vanilla extract, then strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve.
  3. Evenly divide mixture into the mandarin halves. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  4. Let sit at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Add chocolate shavings if using.
