Hi mornnen! I seem to remember the last time I made it, I stored leftovers for a couple of days.

Hello, if I can add my grain of salt here: I used to make posset when I was a pastry chef at a restaurant in England. The regulations said that dairy products should not be kept longer than 4 days. We seldom had leftovers, but I did have some left for three days once. They were fine to eat, but we didn't serve them, because the textures wasn't as delicate and they had developed a bit of a tough 'skin' on the surface. So, my commis chef was very happy, as he got to eat two possets! In short: they'll be safe for four days or so, but they'll be at their best if eaten within 48 hours.
