"Oh dear...failed at the first hurdle! So disappointing"
01 August 2016
The ricotta was rubbery and nasty I threw it away. Had all the right kit, followed the instructions to the letter using skimmed organic milk and lemon juice, sterilised everything, measured the temperature diligently, stirred gently when told to, waited as advised used scalded cheesecloth and colander then transferred it to the mould. I give up as I don't want to waste anything else. I started with the easiest cheese and was prepared for an iffy result first time but this was inedible and unspeakable. The book was nice looking but lacks troubleshooting tips plus what to do with the whey.
