Ricotta is traditionally made from the whey that's left over from the cheese-making process, and it's often extremely mild. This recipe brightens the simple cheese with a combination of honey, vanilla, and lemon zest--transforming it into a light morning topping that could rival any high-end yogurt or jam.
