Author Notes: The day I discovered how to make my own ricotta was the most inspiring day. I am such a scientist at heart,even though as an undergrad I majored in English because my mother told me everyone needed to know how to write. Making the ricotta took me back to my days in chemistry class, as I poured the vinegar into the heated pot of milk and the curds instantly began to form. What a treat for an ol' science geek. Hope you enjoy this simple spread!Table9

  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  1. With a hand mixer, whip together the ricotta, feta and milk until smooth. Add the sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon of thyme. Place ricotta spread in a serving dish.
