    ducky007's Note:

    Making fresh cheese, easily at home! Ricotta cheese, Cottage cheese and Feta cheese are made using a similar process, the main difference being that Ricotta is made with sheep's milk while, Cottage cheese is made with cow's milk and Feta is made with goat's milk. This recipe is for Cottage cheese using cow's milk. The addition of cream creates a rich flavor.
