Grilled Peaches with Ricotta

These delicious marinated grilled peaches with ricotta cheese are both hot and cold, savory and sweet.

Ingredients

  • 3 peaches
  • 3 oranges
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (or 1 stick)
  • 2 shots rum
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • 10 mint leaves
  • Splash of cream or olive oil

Steps

  1. Cut peaches in half and remove pits; place in a large bowl.
  2. Cut the grapefruit and oranges in half and squeeze juices into the bowl with the peaches. Add the honey, cinnamon, rum and a pinch of salt. Stir to combine. Marinate for at least 1 hour, or up to 4 hours. Reserve marinade liquid.
  3. Coarsely chop mint leaves and combine with ricotta in a small bowl. Add salt and olive oil or cream to taste.
  4. Heat a grill pan. Remove the peaches from the marinade and grill them cut-side down until grill marks form. Do not flip.
  5. Place peaches on a plate skin-side down. Dollop the ricotta mixture into the hole where the pit was and serve.
  6. Optional: Serve the leftover marinade liquid over ice for a refreshing adult beverage!
