This is What Happens When I Read Books About Food

April 28, 2009

This isn’t anything particularly exciting — just a recipe that I came up with that was extremely delicious, so I wanted to share. (I do have thoughts that I am forming into entries that don’t require you to cook…they are coming. Promise.)

Sauteed Apples with Honey Ricotta
(For one very delightful serving)

1/2 green apple, cored and sliced thin
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. butter (just enough to cook the apples, which shouldn’t take much)
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 tbs. fresh ricotta (Forest Hills Foods carries an excellent brand made locally and fresh in Clinton Twp.)
Drizzle of honey (no more than 1/2 tsp. or so)

Heat up a small frying pan to medium heat. Melt the butter, then add the apples and cinnamon. Once these cook (5 minutes or so) and get tender (but not mushy), add the lemon juice and take off the heat immediately. The heat of the pan and the apples should turn the lemon juice into a syrupy consistency.

Mix the ricotta with the honey. Slide the finished apples onto a nice plate or bowl, then top with the sweetened ricotta and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Savour slowly and enjoy!

I don’t know if anyone else who reads this (minus Amanda) is a foodie at all, but this is a delicious and reasonably healthy dessert. The contrasts of cool and warm, crisp and creamy — it’s heavenly.

Do you have a favorite dessert recipe? Please share! I love new ideas!
