Step 1

In a pot, add milk, cream if using it, salt and lemon juice and stir.

Step 2

Bring mixture to a boil and boil for about 4 minutes stirring constantly then reduce to a low simmer.

Step 3

Simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring continuously so it doesn't burn on the bottom.

Step 4

remove from heat and let it cool.

Step 5

Place a cheese cloth over a bowl or you can use thick paper towels and lay 4 sheets over a bowl if you don't have cheese cloth but cheese cloth or a fine mesh fabric works best.

Step 6

Pour the cooled mixture over the cloth and let it sit for about 45 minutes or until the liquid is mostly run through the cloth and a pile of ricotta cheese remains.

Step 7

Store in the refrigerator and use within a few days.
