This is the most heavenly ricotta you have ever tasted! We make this with the left over whey from making homemade mozzarella cheese. Please search HOMEMADE MOZZARELLA CHEESE for the recipe. I love this for breakfast with some splenda and fresh lemon zest!

    Ladle the curds into a colander lined with muslin or a lightweight towel. Allow to drain. Once you can handle the cloth (it maybe too hot). Tie it in a knot and hang on the kitchen faucet and allow to drain for several hours.
