Ricotta Honey Toast

My ricotta toast uses local sourdough bread, Montana raw honey and fresh picked huckleberries.

What is ricotta honey toast?

When the temps are hot and you can’t bear to turn on the oven, ricotta toast makes a wonderful light dinner option.

Smear a generous helping of fresh ricotta (use yogurt or mascarpone if desired) over ripe thinly sliced fruit. Drizzle honey, thyme from the garden, the berry jam and flaked sea salt over the fruit slices.

I mashed the hucks (or use any berry you have) into a simple jam. Then drizzle olive oil on day old bread and toast in a hot pan. Believe it or not, 3 day old bread makes the BEST toast.

Other than toasting some bread in a pan, there is zero baking or cooking. Serve this with tea as a quick afternoon pick me up snack, for breakfast or with a glass of wine for a light dinner with perhaps a bit of prosciutto over the fruit. Try it with apricots, figs or peaches. If you do not have Glacier National Park in your backyard and cannot procure fresh huckleberries, try blackberries or blueberries.

Favorite hikes for scouting huckleberries in Northwest Montana:

  1. Big Mountain in Whitefish has great hikes in late summer where you can pick huckleberries
  2. Bob Marshall Wilderness- With over 1.5 million acres of wilderness, the Bob has multiple hikes and trails. guided hikes are your best bet for finding huckleberry spots, if you are from out f town and visiting.
  3. Huckleberry Lookout trail- in Glacier National Park- take Bear Spray

Shhh! I’ll never tell where my favorite spot is for picking these plump huckleberries.
