Over at Stumptown Savoury, Gareth has an excellent blog that I enjoy. He also has a post about making ricotta cheese at home, which is great because I can share it with you! (without having to write about it again myself)
I have tested doing it the way he says and it came out as good as his pictures show. Here is the link Home Creamery: Whole Milk Ricotta. Come on people, it has four ingredients: Milk, Heavy Cream, Citric Acid, & Salt!
What can you make with Ricotta? Lasagna, Manicotti, desserts...Gareth has already listed two more ideas on his site to go with his ricotta recipe. (just click Stumptown Savoury above)
Also, there is a link on his site for ordering citric acid which is one of the ingredients...But if you don't want to wait maybe this will do the trick for you:
I have had great success in finding Sour Salt (brand ROKEACH) in the Kosher section of Safeway food stores. Sour Salt IS citric acid, check the ingredients there is only one – citric acid.
About 5 1/2 ounces for $2.19 – plenty of cheese making citric acid.
