Looking for a great dish to make today? try a Honey Whipped Ricotta With Berries. Pair this dessert with a seasonal Belgian-style dubbel ale (such as Allagash Double).

Honey Whipped Ricotta With Berries

  • 2 cups whole-milk fresh ricotta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 4 tablespoons honey (orange blossom, preferably)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Grated zest of one lemon
  • 4 cups mixed fresh berries
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

In a medium bowl, blend ricotta, 1 tablespoon of the sugar, honey, vanilla and lemon zest until smooth. Cover tightly and place in refrigerator to chill (can be made a day ahead). In another medium bowl, place berries, lemon juice and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar. Mix gently with a rubber spatula so as not to bruise berries. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Divide the ricotta into six chilled martini glasses. Serve berries over the ricotta.
