How To Make Ricotta Cheese

Servings 9 1/2 oz (270g)

Ingredients
  

  • 3 ½ cups milk
  • ½ cup cream
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

Instructions
 

  • Place the milk, cream and salt in a pot or large saucepan and bring to the boil.
  • At this point stir in the vinegar and take off heat.
  • Stand in pot or saucepan for 5 minutes. The mixture should begin to curdle.
  • Strain the mixture through a very fine strainer or muslin cloth to separate the curds. Allow to strain for 10 minutes to ensure thick and creamy ricotta.

If you don’t have a fine strainer or muslin cloth you can line a normal strainer with a clean dish cloth.

    1. Thanks for sending the summer recipes, I will make them and send my comments as soon as possible. Thanks once again.

      • Hi Yvonne, yes definitely the whole milk will work better. The flavor is better and you will end up with more ricotta than if you use a lower fat milk. Hope that helps, Jason.
