Ricotta is an Italian dairy product made from sheep, cow or buffalo milk whey left over from the production of cheese. Ricotta is used in many desserts, such as cheesecakes and cannoli, and pasta dishes.

Ingredients

Preparation

Place the milk, cream and salt in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally in the same direction while heating.

When the milk reaches approximately 180° F, add the buttermilk and vinegar. Stir when the curds start to rise to the surface. Lift out the curds with a skimmer and place in several layers of cheesecloth. Drain for 15 to 20 minutes.

Serve the cheese on baguette slices, drizzle with olive oil and top with fresh thyme leaves.
