Cherry Ricotta Toast

The easiest and quickest cheese to make, ricotta pairs perfectly with our sublime cherry preserves


2 slices of bread of your choice, we like sourdough, baguette and brioche
1/2 cup New Canaan Farms Cherry Preserves
2 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
2 tbsp lemon juice
3/4 tsp salt
1 cheesecloth

Hot coffee, iced tea or a cool glass of wine


  • A super-simple recipe that will give you great satisfaction! All you have to do is make the ricotta
  • Gently heat the milk and cream in a medium pan until it starts to bubble
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice and salt, then leave the mixture to sit without stirring
  • After 3-5 minutes the mixture will start to curdle. When this happens strain it through the cheesecloth into a sieve that is sitting over a bowl. Leave to drain further for 1 hour
  • When ready to eat, lightly toast your bread and assemble the tartine; ricotta first topped with the cherry preserves
  • That’s it!

Refund Policy

We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and stand by every product we ship to our customers. Please contact us for any product or shipment

We do not accept returns of product we have shipped. However, we have a limited 15-day refund policy, which means you have 15 days after receiving your item to request a refund or exchange if the product we shipped to you is defective, damaged or not what was ordered. Please note that refund requests will need to include a description of the defective product with photos.

We will notify you once we’ve received your refund request and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be refunded on your original payment method within 10 business days. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.

Shipping & Refunds

For orders over $60, we offer free ground shipping to a single delivery physical address in the contiguous United States (shipping to PO Boxes incurs a $5 surcharge). For all shipping, we use the best solution available for your address, and get your order out as fast as we can. We will never take longer than 3 business days to process your order and prepare it for shipment, and if you pay the premium for overnight shipment we strive (but do not guarantee) to prepare it and put it in the carrier’s hands within 24 hours. Very occasionally, we may experience delays due to supply chain constraints or other forces beyond our control. If we are not able to ship your order within five days of receipt, we will contact you to explain the timeline and offer you a refund if you prefer. Unfortunately, we are unable to hold individual orders for future ship dates.

We also provide the ability to break your order into multiple shipments and enter individual shipping addresses for those.  Please note that the free shipping offer applies to each individual address, so you would need to spend more than the minimum in each separate shipment to qualify for free shipping.

If you have any questions or concerns about your order, a shipment, or a refund, we encourage you to call or email so we can handle it personally for you!
