comment Why doesn't my Lemon Posset thicken? What am I most likely doing wrong?
You could try using concentrated lemon juice. The coagulation process increases in proportion to the acid level, so a stronger acid will boost it.

comment Is it true about a dull knife being more likely to cut you?
Imagine cutting a large tomato. With a sharp knife, the blade slices into the skin and straight down through the flesh without a problem. With a dull knife, you have to push down hard to try and pierce the skin, with an increased risk of it just slipping off to the side and into your fingers or hand.
