Posset Another Way, Richer


  • 2 quarts of cream
  • whole spice
  • 12 eggs
  • sugar
  • 1 pint of wine, or more: sack, sherry, or Lisbon


Take the cream, and boil it with whole spice; then take the eggs, well beaten and strained; take the cream from the fire, and stir in the eggs, and as much sugar as will sweeten it according to the taste of those who are to drink it; then the wine. Set it on the fire again, and let it stand awhile; then take a ladle, and raise it up gently from the bottom of the skillet you make it in, and break it as little as you can, and do so till you see that it is thick enough. Then put it into a basin with a ladle gently. If you do it too much or too quickly it will whey, and that is not good.
