So it’s cold here. It’s winter and there are officially several inches of snow on the ground. Perhaps as in most families with young children that means cold season has officially arrived and we are being duly hammered with its effects. As a counter offensive, both to ward against the cold and the colds, I’ve been making real, honest to goodness chicken soup out of this lovely chicken broth. Most of the time, I have to admit, my chicken broth comes from those re-sealable boxes. I tell myself that it’s okay and way easier (it’s true, it is) just to use the boxed stuff. But then I make real chicken broth, glowing a glorious yellow, rich with fragrant herbs and gold fat floating on top and I remember why it is that real chicken broth is so much better.

Serves: n/a

Time: 10 mins + more to drain

I love making my own ricotta. It’s actually a snap to do and then you always have exactly enough fresh ricotta for whatever recipe you’re making with no fillers, stabilizers and other crap included.
