How to Make Making Homemade Ricotta Cheese #2

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine milk, heavy cream, and salt (if using) in a nonreactive heavy bottomed saucepan.

    Place saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.

    Add lemon juice and continue to boil, stirring constantly until curds separate, about 1 minute.

    It may be necessary to adjust the heat to prevent cream from overflowing.
  • 2Pour into a very fine-mesh stainless steel strainer. If your strainer is not very fine, line it with 2 thicknesses of washed and dampened cheesecloth.
    Place strainer over a bowl that is deep enough for the strainer to sit over and not touch the liquid.

    Allow cheese to drain for 1 hour in the refrigerator. Discard liquid and transfer ricotta to a covered container. Refrigerate until ready to
    use, or up to 3 days.
  • 3P.S.
    As with recipe #1...it can be made with buttermilk, heavy cream, vinegar or lemon juice - there are many recipes and they are all good - just make sure to use whole milk - that makes it the best.
