Here's a recipe from Ann Arbor’s People’s Coop recipe site. The marketing and member services manager of the Coop, Kevin Sharp, is an excellent cook, farmer and photographer, and he tells me the recipes are a collective effort.

Don't pigeon hole ricotta — not only is its creamy richness marvelous in pasta dishes, it's divine, as well, in desserts. The addition of fresh thyme in the following recipe is genius.

The following recipe was adapted from the Ann Arbor People’s Food Coop Recipe Site.

Time: 10 minutes
Number of servings (yield): 4-6


1 and 1/4 cups honey
2 and 1/2 cups ricotta
1 cup fresh berries 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
flowers (if available) or thyme leaves


1. Heat the honey in a sauce pan until watery.
2. Divide the ricotta among 4-6 serving dishes or goblets.
3. Divide the warmed honey over each serving. Top each serving with berries and thyme leaves.
