Whole Milk Basket Ricotta

Whole Milk Basket Ricotta

Our Whole Milk Basket Ricotta starts with the rich, whole Jersey cow milk produced on our neighbors’ farms. We first culture the milk to bring out its delicious flavors and then slowly heat each batch in small kettles until the curds form. Sold in its original draining basket, this unique ricotta is known for its pillowy texture.

Fresh preserved Walnuts by Harvest Song – so unique! I love them with Bellwether Farms whole milk ricotta. Mmmmm!
