Ingredients

  • 1 gallon whole milk
  • 4 cups plain low-fat yogurt

  • ΒΌ cup California Olive Ranch extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons salt

Directions

  1. Mix together all ingredients in a rondeau or non-reactive pot and put on low-med heat
  2. Stir occasionally to make sure bottom doesn’t scorch and to allow the curds to form and rise to the top
  3. Line a perforated hotel pan with cheesecloth and place over a deep hotel pan. When curds have developed remove pot from heat and pour mixture over the cheesecloth/hotel pan. Allow ricotta to drain for 30 mins.
  4. Scoop desired amount onto toasted bread, and finish with a generous pour of California Olive Ranch extra virgin olive oil and chili flakes.
