How to serve?
This ricotta is a great spread for crackers or a base for pancakes and muffins.
For a thicker, drier cheese, go for a bit longer.
For smoother, creamier ricotta, go for a little less amount of time.
Can I double the recipe?
This recipe can be doubled or tripled to make as much ricotta as you like.
Double the ingredients and use the same cooking time.
But we recommend trying the first time with just one batch to get the hang of the process first.
What should I do with the leftover syrup?
The liquid leftover in the pot after cheese making is called whey.
It’s full of beneficial probiotic organisms, vitamins, amino acids, and minerals, so don’t pour it down the drain!
You can use it in soups, sauces, and smoothies as a neutral liquid that adds a nutritional boost.
