8 cups whole milk
Pour milk mixture in colander.
Let drain for about 30 minutes…now there are many ways to do this and most folks just let it sit in the colander and drain…but not me! I read somewhere that you can tie it to your faucet and it will drain faster, so I had to give it a try! If you can get away with this without your family hauling you off to the foodie loony bin then I say give it a try! Either way you will have good results!
Let drain for about 15 minutes and check the consistency. It can get a bit dry if left to drain too long. When your Ricotta has reached desired consistency…remove from cheese cloth and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
