Ricotta (literally “re-cooked”) is a fresh unripened cheese obtained from the serum (whey) that comes out after the coagulation process, combined with a small amount of milk. Its name (from Latin “recoctus”) refers to its preparation process, which entails the whey being “re-cooked” a second time. For long time, whey was thought to be a “residue” of the milk. Today it is defined as the “noble” protein of milk, with the highest nutritional value and lowest content of fat.
Ricotta soft and smooth texture offers a very delicate flavor that makes it one of the most versatile additions to your recipes, baked into an awesome ricotta cake, stirred into pasta or eaten straight off of a spoon with a drop of golden honey! A healthy nutritious treat for the little ones (and the not so little anymore!)
