About a year ago I was enjoying dinner with friends at a potluck get together and there it was… Homemade Ricotta Cheese to go along with a salad someone had brought. I swear I died and went to heaven RIGHT there! Oh. my. goodness.
So, lets get to it! Super simple… just use a non metallic pot (I used my ceramic dutch oven)
• Bring 4 cups of whole milk
• 1 cup of cream
• sea salt to 175 degrees over medium heat.
•Turn off the heat and add in the white wine vinegar- then let it sit for one minute until it curdles.
Have your double layer of cheese cloth lined strainer over a bowl ready to go and pour the mixture into the strainer.
THEN wha-la! Let it strain away and about 20 minutes later a little bit of heaven will be left in your cheese cloth.
I know you’ll fall in love this Homemade Ricotta Cheese! Enjoy!
