Easy 3-Ingredient Homemade Ricotta

Easy + Delicious Homemade Ricotta

I learned how to make ricotta years ago and I haven't bought it in the store ever since! It is truly the easiest cheese you can make at home and is so versatile. It's lovely on its own, or you can add seasonings and flavors to make it sweet or savory.

All you need is about half an hour to pull it together.

Serve it warm right after making or chill for future use.

Good milk, salt + acid

Behold the power of milk!

HEAT THE MILK

Add milk to a large saucepan and add the 1-1/4 tsp. of salt. Heat to medium and slowly heat the milk to 185F. As soon as it reaches that temperature, remove from heat and have your vinegar or lemon juice ready.

ADD THE ACID + WAIT

Add your acid of choice (1/4 c. white vinegar or 1/2 c. of lemon juice) and slowly stir it in. Right away you'll notice the milk separate - this is where the curds start to separate from the whey.
