Keep an eye on the time as it reaches temperature.

You can use your simmering basket for a cheese mold with a cloth, but you may choose to use a proper cheese mold with smaller gaps so no need for a cloth.

I like to add fresh herbs from the garden in my mold so it mixes through as it sets.

You can use the whey from this recipe if using good quality fresh milk to make another batch of ricotta following these steps again.
