Homemade Ricotta, Easier Than Pie
Store bought ricotta simply can't compete with the warm, homemade stuff. You may have thought making ricotta yourself was too difficult, or required a trip to a specialty store. Not with this recipe! All you need is milk, cream, salt, and lemons, and you're in business.
We eat some of this warm, fresh ricotta in the morning for breakfast with fresh fruit. I then use the rest to make Lemon Ricotta Pancakes the next day. The pancake actually freeze well so the left-overs go into a Ziplock and into the freezer and I have a quick and easy breakfast option for my kids during the busy weekday mornings.
