Homemade Ricotta

Real ricotta cheese is made by reheating the whey left over from cheesemaking. Most of us at home don’t have easy access to a large supply of whey, but we can use milk and an acid like white vinegar to make a remarkably similar cheese that looks, tastes, and behaves almost exactly like true ricotta. The keys to getting it right lie in using the right amount of acid, heating the milk to the right temperature, and holding it there long enough for a ricotta-like flavor to develop.
