Italian Style Munchies

I'm closing up the summer house for winter, and need to toss food that won't last. So there's this half pint of Ricotta just waiting for a decision. and it's fresh. I stirred in some honey, and a glug or so of cane jelly Robert gave me as a gift a few years ago. Cane jelly has the essence of molasses, or treacle. It's sweet, but it also has a bite. It's best when spread on warm scones.

Mix some good honey into the ricotta, add cane jelly to taste. Mix well, but leave a few puddles of the sweets, And when you are certain you are alone, tuck into it.

Let this be our little secret.

Michael, I was so happy to find your blog today as well as your archive of cooking columns on the Fire Island News site. You write the best cooking columns bar none -- you have a real gift for making recipes inspiring, accessible, and easy to add to one's repertoire. I hope all of your past columns will be available on FI News or this blog, or that you even come out with a collection in cookbook form. Keep up the good work.

Rebecca at Cape Coop is a very dear faraway friend, so I happened in.

There's an old Southern thing for sprinkling Turbinado or Demerarr onto sour cream or ricotta, stirring in some, and leaving those luscious little puddles atop---it's on lots of tea and brunch tables, especially, for dipping strawberries and other fruit.

I just joined your list of followers, and wish I'd been around for all those years of your column. Are there archives?
