180g pack Cherries, halved and pitted
1 large sprig rosemary
2 tbsp acacia honey, plus extra to drizzle (optional)
1 tbsp whole milk
½ unwaxed lemon, finely grated zest
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
4 thick slices sourdough
1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC, gas mark 4. Put the cherries, rosemary, 2 tbsp honey and 1 tbsp water in a small roasting tin in which everything fits snugly. Roast for 15 minutes, giving everything a quick stir halfway through cooking.
2. Meanwhile, put the ricotta, milk, lemon zest and vanilla bean paste in a mixing bowl. Use a small hand whisk to whip together.
3. Toast the bread and arrange on plates. Top with the whipped ricotta, spoon over the cherries and their roasting juices, plus a couple of the picked rosemary leaves. Drizzle over a little more honey, if liked, before serving.
Cook’s tip These roasted cherries are also wonderful with ice cream, spooned on top of pavlovas or simply eaten with porridge for breakfast.
