    WhiskingWings's Note:

    Homemade ricotta is perfect to customize based on the milk and other additions you have around. This fine-textured version amps up the decadence factor with half and half cream and whole milk,and uses citric acid for a clean-tasting coagulant (since vinegar and lemon juice can both taste bitter over time). A pinch of sea salt rounds out the flavours.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine the cream, milk and salt in a saucepan.
    2. 2
      Mix the citric acid and cold water, then add half this mixture to the milk in the pot and place over medium heat.
    3. 3
      Bring the mixture up to 185F, stirring almost constantly to prevent scorching.
    4. 4
      If the milk does not curdle by this point, begin adding the reserved acid solution tablespoons at a time.
    5. 5
      Once it begins to curdle, remove from the heat and let it rest 30 minutes.
    6. 6
      Place a colander in a sink and line with a moistened double-layer cheesecloth or clean dishtowel.
    7. 7
      Slowly pour the cooked mixture into the colander, allowing the whey to run through while the curds collect in the cloth.
    8. 8
      Gather the corners of the cloth and tie them together, then either hang the ball of ricotta from the faucet or leave in the colander 15 minutes.
