Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Love to make this but I do add salt to the warm milk for flavor. Please! Don't throw away the liquid which is whey like in Little Miss Muffitt.
I flavor mine with a little vinegar and salt. It makes a nutritious and yummy drink all by itself and can be used in cooking as well.

I've made cheeses for years, but always with rennet, with the exception of ricotta, which I did the traditional way of boiling down the whey and fine curds. This is a really great way of doing it - I like the tangy result! I used skim milk for mine to further reduce the fat. Submitted by:

Here's what puzzles me.
If I compare your nutritional values to those of the ingredients, I have to conclude that the liquid you drain off contains most of the food value. Precisely:
Calories: 83
Fat: 1.8
Carbs: 10.5
Protein: 20.8

My question is this. Is there any good use for this liquid?

this won't work if you don't use whole milk. A stainless steel pan is non-reactive. & I am not sure what are the calories for the whey. It is delicious with a little sweetner esp. warm. Submitted by:

Interesting! I'm making a zucchini lasagna this weekend so maybe I'll make my own ricotta too! Can you use fat-free milk? Submitted by:

Quick and simple. I usually have to add some lemon, but this worked without it. I used the full cream milk with kefir instead of buttermilk. The cheese came out pretty solid, almost like mozzarella. I mixed it with sour cream and some vanilla sugar and used it as filling for crepes. Big hit! Submitted by:

Incredibly good. Today, for a dessert option, I switched out the 2% for lowfat chocolate milk. I added one Tablespoon of lemon juice at the end to help form the curds and had to cook it about 5 min longer but it turned into a dandy dessert with cherries atop. Obviously changes the nutritional info. Submitted by:
