  • 1 quart Guida’s Dairy Whole Milk
  • 2 cups Guida’s Dairy Heavy Cream 36%
  • 1 cup Guida’s Dairy Lowfat Buttermilk
  • 1 lemon
  • Salt

Cooking Instructions:

  • Combine all ingredients into a large pot. Squeeze juice of the lemon on top of the ingredients and mix together.
  • Cook over low heat until it begins to simmer. Once the curds have separated from the whey, remove from heat.
  • Pour the mixture into a cheesecloth-lined bowl and allow it to drain. The longer you let the mixture drain, the thicker the ricotta.
  • Transfer the ricotta to another bowl and season with salt to taste.
  • Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 4-5 days.
