Ricotta is a lovely kind of cheese. It is special as it can fit sandwiches or dessert fillings.

It is also very useful for the body as it contains calcium that protects and strengthens the bones.

You can start by preparing the lemon salt liquid. All you need to do is add a gram of lemon salt to 100 millimeters of water, and mix them together.

You can, alternatively, use the juice of half of a citrus lemon.


Warm the fresh full cream milk to 90 degrees. Then, add salt, followed by the lemon salt liquid or the lemon juice.

Mix, and leave it for an hour.
