Fresh Ricotta
My wife picked up some fresh ricotta cheese from Calandra Cheese market on Arthure Avenue this weekend.  I love to spread good fresh ricotta on a slice of Italian bread, drizzle it  with extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle some coarse sea slat and freshly ground pepper on top.  I only do this when I have good quality fresh ricotta, and I have not been able to find any place in Connecticut that makes their own, all I see is the plastic tubs of Polly-O and such.

I have tried my hand at making my own fresh ricotta, and while the results have been good, I just really haven’t been able to get into making it too often, I would much rather find a good source and buy it.  If you are interested in trying to make your own, below are some links to recipes for three different methods that I have found.  If anybody knows of a good source for fresh ricotta in Connecticut, especially Fairfield County, please let me know in the comments.
