Lesson 14: How To Make Cheese Course | How To Make Ricotta Cheese
What do I do with all this leftover whey? The answer is: Make an incredible cheese called ricotta! You take that whey and you “re-cook it” (so THAT’s where the name comes from!) when you learn how to make ricotta cheese. The production of ricotta cheese dates back thousands of years, with evidence that it made regular appearances on Italian family’s plates as far back as 3300 BC! After watching this ricotta cheese tutorial, you will be making this cheese in a way very similar to how it has been done since the beginning — with the help of modern cooking tools, we hope. This detailed lesson covers every necessary ingredient in making ricotta cheese, how to use citric acid crystals (and why it is sometimes not necessary), and even delves into the science of bacteria a little bit. This whole cheesemaking course is kind of like a massive science experiment, isn’t it. A science experiment you can eat! We love science!
