Transcript:How to Make Homemade RicottaHi there! I am Jodina of Italiano With Jodina. I teach Italian language and cooking classes in the San Diego area. Right now we are going to learn how to make homemade ricotta cheese.
Ingredients for Homemade RicottaFor this recipe, homemade ricotta, you will need:
- a gallon of milk. The best is to use whole pasteurized milk. You could also substitute goat's milk, which you can find in specialty grocery stores. It has a slightly muskier flavor that some people might not like. It really depends on the recipe that you are going to be making with the resulting ricotta.
- You will also need a third cup of vinegar, white vinegar or you could substitute an equal or greater amount of lemon juice depending on how acidic it is. You will know this in your curdling process.
- You will also need a sieve or a strainer, something like this and cheesecloth for draining your ricotta later on.
