Recipe: 2 L whole milk Pinch of salt 3 tbsp lemon juice
Method: Bring milk and salt up to 200 F (93 C). Take milk off heat and add lemon juice. Stir gently and leave to curdle for 10 minutes. Set four layers of cheese cloth over a strainer and strain for 15 minutes to an hour. The less time you leave the ricotta the softer the texture. The longer you leave it the firmer the finished cheese will be.
