(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)— Chef Jeremy makes Ricotta cheese on Live at Five.

Here is how to make the Ricotta cheese: 

1) Slowly bring 2qt whole milk, 1cup heavy cream, half a tsp of salt to a rolling boil in a heavy pot over medium heat stirring often to prevent scorching.

2) Add 3tbl spoons of fresh lemon juice and reduce the heat to a low simmer and stir until the mixture curdles (about a min or two)

3) Pour the mixture into a cheesecloth-lined sieve and let it drain until the ricotta is your desired consistency.

4) Discard the drained liquid and enjoy. ricotta will keep for several days if covered and refrigerated.

Showers will continue overnight and heading into Wednesday morning. There is the possibility some patchy fog could also develop so you may want to allow some extra time to get to work in the morning. Lows will be in the 60s.
