Recipe's preparation

    Fresh Ricotta
  1. 1. Heat 2 litres of milk for 12-15min/temp 85/sp3. Make sure the milk reaches a steady temperature. But do not burn or scald. I have found once it has frothed and reached temperature it works well.

    2. Working quickly, turn the speed to 4 to create a whirlpool and turn off, while still whirling poor in lemon juice. Allow to sit for 1-2 minutes. The liquid should start to become a clear yellow colour.

    3. Gently poor the liquid and solids from the bowl into the basket to strain the solids. you can also use a nut bag or cheesecloth to do this.

    4. Drain well. Discard the liquid.

  2. Baked Ricotta
  3. 1. Grate Parmesan cheese, place 1cm cubes in bowl and mill sp9/2sec.

    2. Add thyme (leaves only), fresh ricotta, egg and seasoning. Mix sp 4/10sec.

    3. Spoon out into well oiled ramekin, (you can line base with baking paper if you choose), fill to 3/4 full. Firmly press ricotta mix into ramiken and drizzle with a small amount of olive oil.

    4. Bake in oven for 45 minutes at 170C, until browned and firmer to touch. You cen serve in the ramekin or turn out and bake for a further 5mins. 

    5. Serve warm or chilled.

When making fresh ricotta, ensure that your milk is at simmering point for a few minutes. Check the temperature to ensure it holds the 85C temp when turned off. If it does not hold the temperature, increase the cooking time to ensure all 2 litres is hot.


Serve on a cheese platter with my Chilli Beetroot Relish.
