Personal Notes:
For the pots de creme to set successfully you need to let the cream and sugar boil and then simmer. This will allow all the sugar to melt properly. If you shorten the time the cream cooks, it will not set correctly. Adding the lemon juice at this point will ensure that the mixture thickens.
