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 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 cheese cloth lined sieve and let it drain until the ricotta is your desired consistency.

Another warm and humid day across much of northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. The region could see a few storms as we head into Saturday morning. Today temperatures will rise into the upper 80s but it will feel like close to 100 degrees.
