I agree with Beth. The Sicilian tomato sauce is sooo good.

error in cookbook : ricotta cheese recipe

You can heat 1 gallon of milk to 85 degrees F then stir in 1 or 2 Tablespoons vinegar. For 1 gallon of milk you will get 1/4 to 1/3 gallon ricotta cheese. The more you stir it the harder the cheese will get.The whey is great for cooking potatoes in or use for milk replacement in bread recipe

fried taters

Okay, I was raised in ah-hi-ah (Ohio) and do not know how to make decent fried potatoes. Do you precook them before frying them? Last fall I bought a half a hog from some friends who raised three hogs, and I was the only one who wanted the lard,.......and ended up with 26 pounds of freshly rendered lard! Now that is a bunch of lard, but I am slowly using it. Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite way so far, but I am also using it for the fat in cornbread.

I finally felt like I had enough surplus milk to try experimenting with the 2 drops of rennet vs the 8 drops in the ricotta cheese recipe. I tried the 8 drops first, because my gut level feeling was the 8 drops was correct, and that the proofreader would have looked closer at the list of ingredients than the instructions, but I was wrong. The 8 drop trial yielded a neufchatel consistency cheese. I have now made this recipe twice with 2 drops of rennet and both times it made a very nice ricotta. So with this unscientific experiement, I am prepared to pencil in 2 drops in my cookbook in place of the 8 drops listed in the ingredients.
