Poached Peaches with Ricotta Mousse
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Cooling time: 1-2 hours
|Water||2 cups||500 ml|
|White wine||1 cup||250 ml|
|Granulated sugar||3/4 cup||175 ml|
|Peaches, halved and pitted||2|
|Ricotta cheese||1/2 cup||175 ml|
|Granulated sugar||2 tbsp||30 ml|
|Whipping cream (35%)||1/2 cup||125 ml|
In a medium saucepan, combine the water, white wine and sugar and bring to a boil, allowing the sugar to dissolve. Add the peach halves, reduce heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, turning the peaches once until they are tender and the skins begin to loosen. Remove from heat and allow to cool before refrigerating for 1 to 2 hours.
In a food processor, mix the ricotta cheese and sugar until smooth in texture. Whip the cream to stiff peaks. Gently fold the whipping cream into the ricotta cheese.
To serve, gently peel the skins off the cooled peaches. Top each peach half with a dollop of ricotta mousse, a sprig of fresh mint and serve.
