You’ll need only milk, salt, vinegar or lemon.
you’ll also need:
The following tools: a pot, a straining cloth and a strainer. Kmart usually has all of this material if you need to. Also if you don’t have any old milk you can actually do and buy some, it works anyway. It’s up to you.
You only have to bring the 1 lt of milk to simmer, add your salt and 4 tbsp of vinegar. Slowly mix with a spoon, and wait for Mother Nature to split the milk in ricotta and whey.
I usually let the milk set and rest for 15 minutes without shaking it too much, then I’ll fold the Strainer with the towel or the cheese cloth and slowly with a ladle I pour the ricotta into the strainer.
The ricotta is ready, for whenever you think you want to enjoy it.
On some cracker or on its own, ricotta is amazing from an entrèn to a Dessert. Just be creative.
With love and passion
