    gailanng's Note:

    From 5 A Day. Chef's Notes: The best hot dessert sauces truly begin with the caramelization of sugar. The rich flavor of the caramel infuses through the butter and fruit flavors to produce an exquisite taste. Although we have used a modest amount of butter, increased amounts are often used. This same sauce can be produced to serve over fresh strawberries, bananas, apples, nectarines, mixed berries, etc.

    1. 1
      Place ricotta cheese in food processor and blend until completely smooth. Remove and stir in vanilla extract and honey. Refrigerate until ready to serve. (This can be done ahead, but the ricotta cheese will become more honey-flavored.).
    2. 2
      When ready to serve, prepare and premeasure all ingredients and have assembled by skillet. This dish will cook quickly. Organize dessert bowls or plates. Mound equal amount of sweetened ricotta cheese on each plate.
    3. 3
      Heat a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat on the cooktop. Sprinkle sugar into dry, hot skillet. Shake pan to distribute sugar evenly on surface of skillet. Lower heat to medium and allow sugar to melt and turn caramel-colored, about 10 to 12 minutes. Do not rush this process or the sugar will burn and scorch. When sugar is mostly liquid and golden brown, remove pan from heat. Carefully add, all at once, the orange juice, zest, butter, and ginger. Cook and stir until sugar is mostly dissolved. Add peach slices, return pan to heat, and continue cooking and gently stirring until peaches are barely done and a rich, flavorful sauce has been created. Add brandy, if desired, and cook for about 1 minute.
    4. 4
      Spoon equal amounts of peaches and sauce over the mounds of cheese and decorate each with a fresh mint leaf or sprig of mint. Serve immediately.
