Cherry Ricotta Toast

Cherry Ricotta Toast

This appetizer has it all - the sweet, the salty, the crunchy! Give it a try and you'll be pleasantly surprised!


Yields 12 servings

  • 1 Italian baguette, sliced into 12 slices
  • 26 large, very ripe cherries
  • 2 Tbsp. Firebee Elderberry Honey, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 -1 1/2 c. ricotta cheese


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and line a sheet pan with foil, sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

Step 2

Remove the stems from the cherries and toss them with the 2 tablespoons of Firebee Elderberry Honey. Do not remove the pits now, as it will release too much of the juices.

Step 3

Spread the cherries out on the sheet pan and bake for about 15 minutes or until the cherries start to wrinkle and the begin to release their juices.

Step 4

While the cherries are cooking, place the bread slices on another sheet pan so they are ready to go into the oven next.

Step 5

Whip the ricotta with a whisk or in a stand mixer until it is as creamy as desired.

Step 6

Remove the cherries from the oven and place the bread in to toast for about 4 minutes per side or until golden.

Step 7

While the bread is toasting, pit the cherries by making a small slit in the side. The pit should come right out. 

Step 8

Spread some of the ricotta on the toast and top with 2-3 cherries. Drizzle with extra Firebee Elderberry Honey and enjoy!
