Step 1
In a microwave-safe bowl, stir to combine Whole Milk (2 cup), Lemon Juice (1/4 cup), and Salt (1 teaspoon). Heat in the Panasonic Microwave Oven on high for 3 to 5 minutes. When milk is bubbling at the edges and you can see the milk has curdled, remove from the microwave. If milk doesn’t curdle, add another tablespoon of lemon or vinegar and microwave for another 30 seconds.
Step 2
Set two layers of paper towels in a wire mesh sieve, and set over a large bowl. Gently pour the milk mixture into the sieve to strain out the liquid. You can let your ricotta strain up to 1 hour. The longer it sits, the firmer your ricotta will be, though I like it fresh and warm.
