2 quarts whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


Slowly bring milk, cream, and salt to a rolling boil in a 6-quart heavy pot over moderate heat, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching. Add lemon juice, then reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring constantly, until the mixture curdles, about 2 minutes.


Pour the mixture into your 220 micron Boldtbag or cone filter and let it drain 1 hour. After discarding the liquid, chill the ricotta, covered; it will keep in the refrigerator 2 days.

    I’ve only done this a couple of times, but was surpeisrd by not only how easy it was, but how good the cheese was.Rather than discarding, you can save the whey and use it for baking, say in pizza dough.
