Homemade Ricotta Cheese
  • 4 cups whole milk {please please please use whole milk}
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Cheesecloth
  1. Line a sieve with double layered cheese cloth and set over a bowl.
  2. In a heavy pot, bring your milk and salt to a simmer over medium heat.
  3. Once it begins to simmer, add the lemon juice. Simmer 1-2 minutes until the curds form.
  4. With a slotted spoon, scoop the curds into your cheesecloth. Let drain for a few minutes. The curds will still look pretty wet which is totally fine!
  5. Transfer the curds into a small bowl; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
