Alexandrina Cheese Co. - Fresh Jersey Ricotta - 500ml
Alexandrina's Fresh Jersey Ricotta is made with a mixture of whey and Alexandrina’s Full Cream Jersey milk.
Ricotta in Italian means ‘re-cooked’ as it evolved as a use for the ‘whey’ left from the making of cheese.
Alexandrina Fresh Jersey Ricotta is a mass of creamy-white, fine and moist grains. It is firm in texture and not too wet, nor too solid.
It is sold in small round wheel that look like an upturned basin with a patterned surface, the result of being drained in a colander then placed in a small tub. It is suitable for spreading, but best for cooking or baking.
Alexandrina Fresh Jersey Ricotta is delicately lemony, mild and milky, with a slightly sweet, eggy flavour with a fresh aroma.
