Homemade ricottaYields: approximately 2 1/2 Cups
- 8 cups whole milk
- 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 Teaspoon salt
Heat milk and salt to a boil over medium heat. Stir occasionally to prevent scalding. Once it starts boiling add the lemon juice and stir. You should see the milk curdle and separate from whey. Once it curdles remove from heat. The yellowish liquid is the whey and will be strained off. Remove from heat and strain the mixture through cheesecloth in a strainer. Let sit for 30 minutes to an hour.
