  1. Looks delicious! That is definitely going to be my weekend project :)

  2. I’ve done paneer (indian cheese) before, which is made like the ricotta but without the cream, and then pressed into a solid shape. It was super-easy and very satisfying, so methinks I’ll have to give the ricotta a try sometime!

    Your photographs are so beautiful… I always feel so inspired after visiting Lottie and Doof!

  4. Daily Spud: Paneer! I didn’t know I could make paneer too…I am going to give that a try.

    Susan: You’re sweet! I am so glad you are enjoying the site.

  5. I LOVE homemade ricotta! I made it once last year, and I used goat milk as per the recipe. I have no idea why it was called for in addition to regular milk. I’ll have try it your way too… I’m tempted to make it this weekend now!

  6. I had a go at this a while ago. Surprisingly, it worked!

    Makes you feel like some kind of crazy chemistry genius, doesn’t it? …It did me.

  7. Me too! Crazy chemistry genius!

  8. This looks fantastic! I’ve been meaning to make ricotta for a while, so I appreciate the reminder. Also, you should try making paneer. It’s pretty easy. I might be wrong, but I think you could even save the whey to make more cheese (ricotta, paneer, or otherwise). I wonder if that would change the flavour of the finished cheese.

  9. I LOVE ricotta. So much. Making it from scratch has been on my “to do” list for a while, and this post is inspiring!

  10. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING is an understatement…..I made this over the weekend and can’t get the incredible texture out of my head. I’m getting a divorce to spend my life with homemade ricotta.

    I saw this recipe in F&W and had to make it!! LOVED it and it was DELICIOUS in the Baked Penne w/ Sausage recipe that was printed along with it.
