Balsamic Cherries And Ricotta
What you will need:
500g cherries; cleaned, halved, and pitted
Ricotta cheese, about ⅓ cup per person +/- to taste
Morgenster Balsamic Vinegar
⅓ cup dark brown sugar
1 table spoon mint; either whole leaf or finely chopped (plus a sprig for garnish if desired)
a pinch of salt
How to prepare:
Clean, halve, and pit cherries, set aside.
The mint can be kept whole or chopped finely.
In a sauce pan, add the balsamic vinegar, dark brown sugar, mint, and salt.
Over a medium high heat, stirring or whisking constantly, reduce the vinegar to a syrup.
Reduce for 5 minutes for thinner syrup to about 10 minutes for a thicker syrup, the longer it is reduced, the thicker it will be. If the leaf was used whole, it should be removed once sauce complete.
In a bowl, add the ricotta cheese and cherries, drizzle several teaspoons of the reduction over the top.
