more homemade than this and there'd be a cow in my kitchen

this was produced in my home science lab yesterday.
it's ricotta!!
and alls it took was some milk and a lemon
and way more patience than my comfort zone could handle.
if ever you're looking for some good old-fashioned g-rated excitement, try pouring lemon juice into milk that has heated to 180 degrees and then watch the curds and whey separate. 
it is so cool i don't know why anyone would need cable television when they could watch curds and whey separate. 
 today i mixed the ricotta with an egg and some herbies and young broccoli leaves and encased it in whole wheat pasta dough to make humungo ravioli friends. i then introduced them to some tomato friends. and together they made the best dinner ever. 
take that, teensy kitchen!
