How to Make Ricotta: The Extended Edition
Sure, you may have made ricotta in the past, but what have you made out of your homemade ricotta? This post from The Kitchn shows you not only how to make ricotta, but what to do with the whey, and how you can make your own ricotta salata.
Making ricotta yourself also gives you a bonus: the leftover whey. This whey is fantastic in baked goods — try using whey instead of water in your next batch of bread or pizza dough. So good. You can also use a few spoonfuls of whey to jump-start the lacto-fermentation process when making things like sauerkraut and kvass.
