1. Pour broth into a large saucepan; skim off fat, if any.
2. Stir tarragon, thyme, lemon, onion and peppercorns into broth; sprinkle gelatin over top; let stand several minutes to soften gelatin.
3. Bring slowly to boiling; simmer 5 minutes; strain into a large, shallow pan. Cool, then chill at least 2 hours, or until firm.
4. Just before serving, cut gelatin into tiny cubes; spoon cubes, alternately with sour cream, into parfait glasses. Garnish each with a parsley sprig, if you wish.
