I am going to share with you today a recipe on how to make homemade ricotta. Nothing beats homemade ricotta!
2L (8 cups) whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp salt
juice of one lemon
large sieve and cheesecloth
Line a large sieve with the cheesecloth and place it over a large bowl.
Bring the milk, cream and salt to a rolling boil in a heavy pot over medium heat, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching. Add the lemon juice and reduce the heat to low and stir constantly. You are going to start seeing the milk to curdle. Stir for 15 minutes. Pour the mixture into the lined sieve and let drain for about an hour.
