Not in a bad way. Yesterday we made not one but two batches of ricotta cheese! It was the easiest thing in the world to do, and oh so yummy. It came together in no time flat. While the baby was sleeping we pulled the ingredients from the frig. The cheese was done before he woke up!
1/2 gallon whole milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbs lemon juice
Bring the first three ingredients to a boil. Add lemon juice and simmer for two minutes.
The strain over cheese cloth into a bowl, and let drain for an hour. You can either use it immediately like we did to make a ricotta cheese cake, or you can refrigerated for a few days and use it in your favorite recipe. We are using the second batch for stuffed shells for dinner tonight! Try it, it is easy, and the best ricotta I have ever had.
