Dear Friends & Home Cooks,
You all know ricotta, the creamy smooth decadent fresh cheese that is that the basis of so many great Italian recipes. You probably buy ricotta from your grocery store but you should know that ricotta is VERY easy to make. Just 3 ingredients and very limited equipment. Homemade ricotta is delicious and you can decide whether you want it less moist because you need to use it for gnudi or other recipes where the cheese is the binding agent.
Try making meatballs with this homemade ricotta (make sure to make it extra dry) and thank me later! Or maybe you can make some in time for July 4th and season it with some honey, blueberries and raspberries and have a decadent dessert in minutes. This homemade ricotta is as versatile as it is delicious.
Enjoy and Happy 4th of July!
