You don’t need any special equipment, the method and technique for this cheese is as simple as the ingredients themselves.

Ricotta salata, which we like to call poor mans parmesan, is just as simple to make! With the added advantage of this cheese is that is can be stored for up to 7 weeks and can be used to grate over your pasta dish.

Another great thing about these 2 simple cheese is that you can use any animal milk to make them, cow, goat, sheep, buffalo. It can be fresh or UHT, it is also a good way to use up milk that is coming to its use by date, and repurpose it.
