Homemade Ricotta Help. Only made 1/4 or 1/3 cup.
I tried making homemade ricotta today. I used 4 cups of whole milk (pasteurized), 1/2 tsp of salt, and 3 tbsp of fresh squeezed lemon juice. I let it drain for 10 minutes in my cheesecloth. It has a great texture and flavor, but it only gave me maybe 1/4 or 1/3 of a cup of product! Did I do something wrong or is that normal?
