- 1/2 gallon of whole milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 fresh lemons, juiced
- Special equipment: large sieve, fine-mesh cheesecloth
- Line a large colander with 3 layers of cheesecloth and place it over a large bowl.
- Slowly bring milk, cream, and salt to a rolling boil in a 6-quart heavy pot over moderate heat, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching. Add lemon juice, then reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring constantly, until the mixture curdles, about 2 minutes.
- Pour the mixture into the lined sieve and let it drain 1 hour. After discarding the liquid, chill the ricotta, covered; it will keep in the refrigerator 2 days.
