"Why look for ricotta cheese in stores, make it yourself!"

Ingredients

  • milk - 8 cups (2 liters)
  • cooking cream - 1 cup (240 ml)
  • salt - 1 tsp.
  • white vinegar - 1/4 cup
measures

How to cook

Cover a large strainer with a layer of gauze and place it on a large pot.

Pour the milk and cooking cream into a large pot, add the salt and heat the mixture over medium heat, while stirring occasionally to prevent it from burning.

Allow it to gradually warm up to 190°F (90°C).

Turn off the heat and add the vinegar, while stirring lightly to mix everything.

Leave the mixture to stand for 10 minutes.

Pour the mixture into a strainer (covered it with a gauze) and allow it to drain in a glass bowl for 20 to 60 minutes.

The longer you let the mixture drain, the thicker the homemade ricotta will be.
