i hope this belongs here. This recipe is from Darius from Daves Garden

Easy Homemade Ricotta Cheese

2 qts regular milk
3 tbs distilled white vinegar or 1/4 cup strained fresh lemon juice
salt, if desired

Pour the milk into a heavy stainless steel or enameled saucepan and stir in the vinegar or lemon juice, set the pot over very low heat and bring the milk very slowly to a simmer (a reading of 200 deg F on a thermometer)

There will be fine beads around the edge of the milk, which will look foamy but will not appear to be boiling, remove the pot from the heat and set it, covered in a spot where the temperature will remain fairly uniform at a reading between 80 and 100 deg. (an unheated oven, without a pilot light is a good spot), let the milk stand for about 6 hours or until a solid curd floats above the liquid (the whey), more or less time may be required, depending on the temperature of the environment and the characteristics of the milk.

Line a fine sieve with doubled dampened cheesecloth (or better yet, two layers of very fine-meshed nylon curtain netting, dampened) and set it over a bowl, dump the curds and whey into the sieve and allow the whey to drain off until the ricotta is yogurt like. if you want a firmer cheese, tie the corners of the cloth to form a bag and hang it up to drain further. (in warm weather, the draining might well be completed in the refrigerator. when the texture of the cheese is to your liking. add a little salt, from 1/4 to 1/2 tsp if you wish. store the cheese covered in the refrigerator. it will be at its best after it has chilled for 24 hours and it will keep well for 4 to 5 days. makes about 1 pound.
