Whipped Ricotta Spread

By • March 14, 2011 • 6 Comments



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

Serves 6

  • 1 cup Homemade Ricotta
  • 1 tablespoon Whole Milk (add more if ricotta mixture seems dry)
  • 3 ounces Feta Cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Local Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Thyme, Finely Chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 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. Sprinkle remaining thyme, black pepper and drizzle with honey to complete. Serve with toast, apples and berries or enjoy on a grilled veggie sandwich!

Thanks hardlikearmour! I just ate it with some lovely crackers with it for dinner last night. Needless to say, there is very little remaining. Hope you have a chance to try it!
