PEI Liquor - Celebrate Spring 2020
Directions Place all the ingredients in a large saucepan and turn heat to medium. Cook, stirrring often, until the mixture comes to a simmer- about 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, then continue cooking for another 30 minutes. Cool completely, then pack into clean mason jars. Store in the fridge for up to 8 weeks, or in the freezer for up to a year. The compote is delicious served with ice cream or cakes or used as a jam.
Transfer the peas and remaining ingredi- ents (except the ricotta) to a food proces- sor, starting with just 1 teaspoon of the olive oil. Process until smooth, adding extra olive oil as needed to reach your desired consistency. Season to taste and serve on toasted sourdough bread topped with spoonfuls of ricotta and zucchini ribbons.
