Was buying fancy ricotta, but thought it was too expensive. So, I followed a recipe that uses 2 parts milk to one part cream, boil, throw in some vinegar, strain through cheese cloth, you’ve made whey.
Started with 2 cups milk, one cup cream…got less than one cup ricotta cheese. Yikes! (Maybe that fancy ricotta I was buying isn’t really THAT expensive?)
Got a lot of whey…which I dumped. Can I do anything with the whey?
Will report back on taste for the ricotta.
