“For fresh ricotta you will need a large pot, a meat or candy thermometer, and some cheese cloth. That is pretty much it. This is a simple recipe that will yield about 1.5 pints of cheese.”

Directions

  1. Heat milk in large pot over medium-low heat. Stir often to avoid any scorching.
  2. Once it appears to be releasing some steam, check the temperature. You are trying to slowly bring it up to 190 degrees. When 190 degrees has been reached, stir in the vinegar and turn off the heat.
  3. Stir in the salt and let the curds sit and separate for about 30 minutes. Strain through the cheese cloth, discard the whey (liquid), and chill in the refrigerator.
  4. That's it - easy and tasty!
