Balsamic Cherries And Ricotta

What you will need:

  • 500g cherries; cleaned, halved, and pitted
  • Ricotta cheese, about ⅓ cup per person +/- to taste
  • ⅓ cup 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.

    Mint-Balsamic Sauce:
    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.
