      This recipe is so much more successful than the ones I've tried that incorporate vinegar. Rich and smooth and flavorful.

      Simply amazing. Wonderful, gorgeous, easy, delicious!!! I didn't have heavy cream so used light cream. The yogurt I used was homemade. The milk was half fat organic. The result: I will never, ever buy ricotta again. This was easier than going out to the shop, organic and cheaper and absolutely amazing in flavour. I keep eating it straight out of the pot in the fridge! I sprinkle it lightly with salt after having strained it.
