How To Make: Homemade Ricotta Cheese

This is so simple, you'll wonder why you ever bought it at the store. Not only that, but I'll never need to run to the store to pick up a container when I want to make lasagna! Three ingredients plus a little cooking time is all you need!

What You Need:

6 c milk
1 tsp salt
3 tbs distilled white vinegar or fresh lemon juice

What To Do:

Line a large sieve with two layers of dampened cheese cloth or food safe paper towels and place over a large bowl.
In a large stainless steel or enameled pot, bring the milk and salt to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Once it boils, turn the heat off, add in the vinegar and give it 1 stir. Let it sit for one full minute then strain through the cheese cloth. Let sit for 20-30 minutes, draining the water or whey that is left behind. The long you let it drain the thicker it will become.
