          I use Apple cider vinegar. It adds a subtle sweetness.

              Serious question. Why make ricotta when you can buy it for about the same or less in the store?

                                    My mother used to make this and it’s actually cottage cheese, not ricotta, as that’s made with the whey, which is discarded here - the actual magic ingredient has been called “the by-product”. And no one knows what to do with it. Smh.

                                      Isn't ricotta a whey cheese? Cheese made from that leftover whey.

                                        I thought ricotta meant “twice cooked” and it was cheese that was made from whey after making another cheese first (like mozzarella)?

                                                              someone needs to make a stir bar for the kitchen. Would make it easier to make things that need to be constantly stirred. My mom's banana pudding recipe takes about an hour of stirring non-stop to make and she only recently started using corn starch to cut the time down because it's close enough to the original recipe but not quite as good.
