I make ricotta cheese. From scratch. Its very gratifying to know I can actually do that.
So earlier this week I discovered some milk going bad and decided to make a batch. Its my creamiest batch ever!
But it was also my biggest and for some reason I can’t seem to use it up. Normally I would make cheesecake. But I need lemon juice. And I’m not about to drive to the shop just for lemon juice. So now I have this ricotta that needs using and today I endeavour to use it. Well most of it anyway. Before it goes bad.
My first offering to ricotta day is a sandwich. I buttered two slices of bread on both sides. Then I mixed some ricotta and green mango pickle (a gift from my new Durban souls) including some of the pickling juices. After slathering this delicious mixture onto the bread I toasted the sarmie in a griddle pan. Delicious and yummy goodness!
Writing this, I realise I should have taken a picture for the blog. Oops!
It went down really well.
Later I may attempt ricotta eggs or even pancakes…. hopefully I remember to take a pic then…
Later days 😀
