Quick Home Made Ricotta

Home Made Ricotta

Home made ricotta* is easy to make and way more delicious than store bought.

*Yes I know it’s not true ricotta because it’s not made from whey but a fresh farmers cheese. Either way, it’s good. Make it.

Adapted from Nancy Silverton’s recipe

4 cups Whole Milk1 cup Cream                                                                                                                                               1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt                                                                                                                          2 tablespoons vinegar

Combine all ingredients and bring just to a boil without stirring. Remove from heat once it reaches a boil. Let sit at room temp for 15 minutes.

Once curds form spoon into a cheesecloth lined strainer. Let sit 15-20 minutes. The longer the ricotta drains the more firm it will become. Once it reaches desired consistancy, move to a bowl and store in refrigerator.
