Step by Step Method
Whisk together honey, lemon juice and ginger in your smallest pot.
Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Immediately reduce heat to low and let mixture simmer uncovered until liquid is reduced by half and becomes syrupy, about 5 minutes.
Strain to remove ginger; let syrup cool until ready to use; it will thicken up a bit more as it cools.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Halve and pit peaches (tip: cut down the indented line of peach and twist open like an avocado)
Brush cut sides of peaches lightly with melted butter.
Grill for about 3-4 minutes per side, until peaches have nice grill marks and start to caramelize a wee bit.
Arrange peaches on a serving tray.
Fluff up the ricotta and put a generous dollop on each peach half.
Drizzle with syrup, sprinkle with mint and serve immediately
