FRESH RICOTTA

Fresh ricotta - A recipe by Epicuriantime.com

serves 8

20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 cups whole milk
    1 cup 35 per cent cream
    ½ tsp salt
    3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

    Crusty bread
    Extra-virgin olive oil

Preparation



  • 1. Stir milk, cream and salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally to avoid scorching. This will take about 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice. Let stand, without stirring, for 5 to 8 minutes until mixture separates.

    2. Line a colander with 5 layers of cheesecloth. Place lined colander over a bowl so excess liquid can drain. Pour mixture into lined colander and let stand for 1 hour. Transfer ricotta to a serving dish or container. If making ahead, ricotta will keep well, covered and refrigerated, for up to 3 days. Serve with crusty bread and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil.
