Melissa Clark’s NY Times recipe for ricotta is a gift. We’ve already made it twice and loved the results both times. A freshness and wholeness that just isn’t in a store’s container. When I messaged her to tell her I would never purchase ricotta in a store again, she replied, “Yay! Mission accomplished.”
Photos of the easy task follow. Recipe is HERE.

Fresh homemade ricotta. Fantastic.
