Caramelized Plum-Ricotta Crostini

22 Dec

I found myself with leftover ricotta and fresh plums from the FFTY box (and a recipe they so helpfully provided in their newsletter) so what better reason might I have to make this? We didn’t do any fancy grilling, just toasting in the toaster over worked fine. Come to find out, this is a Bobby Flay recipe – explains the insistence on grilling! It was a great treat, try it sometime!


  • 12 slices French baguette, lightly grilled
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 plums, halved, pitted and sliced
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh ricotta
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Bring the orange juice and sugar to a simmer in a large saute pan, over medium-low heat. Add the plums and cook until slightly softened and caramelized.
  2. Top each piece of bread with some of the plum mixture, then a dollop of ricotta and a sprinkling of black pepper.

Pretty and tasty:
