Looks delicious and easy to make at home! I have not yet tried making my own ricotta, but I have a feeling I will have to whip some of this up very soon!


I am amazed at how easy that was! I can't wait to try it!!! Thank you sooo much for posting this! My family is going to be so excited!


yum! i love homemade ricotta and yes, it is a revelation!!


This is very helpful Ricotta cheese are expensive here. This will save me money. Thanks.

There's really no looking back after making ricotta at home. I've got the ingredients on hand to make another batch soon.


I need to make homemade ricotta because I keep hearing how it is so much better than store bought. It really does look better than the store bought stuff too. You can tell it has a creamy texture too


Incredibly simple! Like others have mentioned, ricotta is pretty expensive so I end up subbing pureed cottage cheese. This definitely is a recipe worth bookmarking.

Wow, very impressive! I love the idea of fresh ricotta made in my own kitchen! Nice post.

You learn something every day. I never knew you could do this so easily at home. Thanks for sharing.


Looks great, and so simple. I teach kids cooking classes and think I might add this recipe to the Italy lesson in a few weeks.


use fullcream Jersey milk to make Ricotta and it's even better.


Who knew it was so easy! I'm still impressed though. It looks beautiful.


Homemade ricotta is my new favorite thing. It's amazing. Just as an fyi if you don't have buttermilk, you can do the exact same thing with lemon juice or white vinegar. Lemon juice is much subtler, but vinegar will do the trick too. Milk + lemon juice = ricotta. Milk + lemon juice + cream = creamier ricotta. :D

Our local Fairway used to carry Jersey cream and they stopped—it was a sad day indeed.

And yes, you can sour your own milk for this recipe if you must, but I really enjoy it with buttermilk. Go for both and do your own taste test.
