Ricotta Tips and Tricks

What is Ricotta?

Ricotta, a creamy Italian cheese, is a versatile ingredient widely used in sweet and savoury dishes. Its soft texture and mild, slightly sweet flavour make it perfect for pasta fillings, desserts, and spreads. Join me at Italian Street Kitchen to discover the culinary possibilities of ricotta and other Italian ingredients.

Ricotta Ingredients

If you’re wondering how to make ricotta, you should know it requires just a few simple ingredients:

  • Whole milk (not ultra-pasteurized)
  • Salt
  • Lemon Juice

Isabella’s Ricotta Tips & Tricks

Perfecting ricotta recipes is easier than you think. Here are my top tips:

  1. Use high-quality, full-fat milk for a creamier texture.
  2. Be patient when heating the milk; slow and steady wins the race.
  3. Add lemon juice gradually until the milk begins to curdle.
  4. Strain the curds carefully for a smooth ricotta consistency.
