    Hi. Is whipping cream thickened cream?

  4. Sue says:

    Making this today, what do,you do with the liquid after straining?

  5. Cindy C says:

    Made this tonight and it worked brilliantly! Creamy and delicate flavour, texture identical to store bought ricotta but better!
    Do you use the whey for anything else afterwards?

    • It is a fabulous recipe Cindy, isn’t it! I love it! You can use the whey for different things such as adding to smoothies, using it instead of water when making bread or even watering it down and sprinkling on your garden. A google search of “uses for whey” will no doubt give you lots of inspiration πŸ™‚ Let us know if you find any exciting uses for the whey!! Have fun x

  6. Nadine says:

    Thanks so much! The cheese is wonderful, and I love that I can use the whey afterwards! Nadine

  7. Shelley says:

    Hi, is there a reason for using pasturised milk? If I only have unpasteurized do I need to pasturise first? Tia!

  8. Lisa says:

    Hi, Have you tried halving this recipe? Cheers Lisa

  9. GABRIELLA Unsen says:

    Hi Simone
    Probably a silly question but how much is MC?

  10. Beth says:

    Brilliant! Thank you Simone. I used A2 thickened cream because whipping cream is not available in A2 milk. It turned out great. Now to make lasagne today…I have been missing that since finding out I need to be using A2 milk…no longer do I need to miss out!

    Just saw homemade ricotta on MKR thought it would be complicated. But looking at your great recipe in Thermomix it sounds fantastic going to try it tomorrow. Thank you so much for posting it

I'd love to hear from you....comments are welcomed :)
