kousalya R.A says:

great recipe dude !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CAN U SHOW ME HOW TO MAKE MASCARPONE CHEESE

Barb Chester says:

Another great ‘how to’ vid? Was wondering…can you freeze Ricotta? Thanks!

Ulbre De Folie says:

excellent thank you, my batch came out as advertised! I have a lime tree out back so used fresh lime juice instead of vinegar. Beautiful result and was also surprised to find the whey tasted great as well, so poured that back into the milk container (about a litre)

Crow the mad says:

I did something like this with an ex friend of mine about a year ago. We didn’t get nearly as much as you got here and it came out kinda rubbery, mostly because we used 2% milk and no heavy cream.

Nabela Noviandini says:

can i subtitute heavy cream with evaporated milk?

Robert Morgan says:

Hey Barb: Yes, you can freeze ricotta but it will separate. You can re-mix by stirring, but it won’t be the same as never frozen ricotta: I don’t recommend freezing.

Tonie Paolo says:

Also, I would like to add that 2 litres of milk makes approximately 500g of ricotta. Considering that you can buy 2lt of milk for as little as $2, and that the cheapest tub of ricotta 450g costs $4.75, that’s a good saving.

Reina hosein says:

can i use full cream evaporated milk ?

eleanor schwager says:

Once again would like a response, but my milk takes less than 15 minutes to boil.  Is there a mistake in this recipe?

vorkev1 says:

thanks m8 I just tried this but I used consintrat as I did not have fresh lemon and it worked just fine. I am going to keep this on hand for the next time I have milk starting to go bad in sted of tossing it or drinking all down not to wast it I will make cheese and free and use in soup.

missing kitsune says:

Definitely going to try this

Eloisa Leyva says:

Hola, quisiera que colocaras los ingredientes en el video 😉
saludos desde México

Tonie Paolo says:

I found it not necessary to add the cream. I’ve made it with (firstly) & then without afterwards. The cream does not add to the cheese in anyway. In fact it is left behind in the whey. I don’t know why. You are wasting between $1.50 & $3 depending on what brand cream you add. I’ve also made it with lemon and found that the ricotta tastes different depending on whether you curdle with vinegar or lemon. If using the ricotta for cakes, I would use the lemon. And if using the ricotta with salad based meals, the vinegar is ideal. Is store the leftover whey and use it for curries as a replacement for buttermilk. Onepotchef’s recipes are good basic short & easy to follow. You can elaborate on recipes in your own good time. But I would still leave out the cream.

Roberta Cooper says:

Amazing, I have a winner. Thank you so very much.

Diane T says:

5/8 of a cup is 10 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons is that right?

kevin O says:

Lemon juice vs. Vinegar. Is there a end result taste result?

Sarah Zalouti says:

We don’t put salt in it ?

Amy Hoffmann says:

Actually what I do is make mozzarella and with the whey that is left over I reheat it and bring it to 200 degrees and watch ricotta cheese form. Skim the ricotta off the top and drain it. Whey is great for tomato plants and roses or even into a compost pile.

Kathy Federico says:

how much does this make?  8 cups of milk and 1 cup heavy cream is about $5.

Moorish Wolf says:

will definitely be making ricotta cheese in the future! It just tastes so wonderful

chicapoosmommy says:

Oh my does that look yummy,gotta make this.I just came across your videos this morning.thanx for the smile and a lol…you are so adorable too….Blessing

MaZEEZaM says:

Barb your settings don’t allow us to reply directly to you but regarding freezing, it may work but it might ruin the texture and taste in the process of freezing and defrosting. I know bought shredded cheeses freeze well but they are much drier cheeses.

DanMartinParanormal says:

what can you do with the excess runoff?

electricrainbow29 says:

Can you turn this into mozella cheese with hot water?

pradeep kumara says:

Can I use wiping cream.

JoJoZep ofthejungle says:

I would of liked to see the “whey ” drained off.
This is like a creamed pana so I wonder how long it lasts in fridge.

Marie Bowling says:

thank you.

Yumi Javier says:

Hi there can i use powder milk?

Hava Guzel says:

That was a good video, just a question, is it the same taste as philadelphia? 

Adam W says:

This is Cottage cheese, not Ricotta. Ricotta is a whey cheese made from the strained liquid.

ScubaGirl says:

I love your channel! Keep it up!

katmykittiesmom says:

Wanted to let you know that we have always drank the whey mixture that comes off of the ricotta cheese.  I was just raised that way.  It reminds me of the way nonfat milk used to look like, translucent and kind of blue.  Remember those days?  LOL!  We use lemon juice from our tree, although the whey does not take on the lemon flavor at all.  Loved your video!

Anne Shirley says:

Is there anything you can do with the liquid that you strain off of the ricotta, so that you don’t just waste it?

Biplob Basak says:

Can we use fresh cream instead of heavy cream..??

Anonymous K says:

Nora Green says:

Mahnoor Naeem says:

Sizil Srivastava says:

Michael Wamoi says:

kavi mahour says:

good job

C8lin Vantel Pearls Independent Consultant says:

Whats the cream do? I have never used cream and i get amazing cheese so im curious what it does for it?

Austin L. says:

I accidentally made ricotta cheese last week: I was making buttermilk with hot water + milk powder + vinegar for my cupcakes. All of a sudden, the milk started curdling like mad, like I was stirring, and it just clumps together. I didn’t realize that this was ricotta cheese and I threw it out! I just realized it when I googled “hot milk and vinegar”.
