Fresh ricotta cheese is a treat and an easy one at that. In 10 minutes you can whip up a batch of this creamy, delicate cheese for savory or sweet dishes. Ricotta cheese freezes well so you can also save some for later. For this simple how-to, you need buttermilk, whole milk, a heavy bottom pot, a slotted spoon and cheesecloth. After making your ricotta, sprinkle with sea salt and lemon juice to brighten the flavors. We think it pairs nicely with some prosciutto for a road trip snack.

    You know what makes this how to the most interesting? Who doesn’t want homemade cheeses! I tried this last night and made my famous baked ziti with it, and I am dying to put it in some lasagna. I’d love to see a homemade cheesecake how to.

  • Wow! I had no idea making ricotta cheese was that easy. Thanks!
