Cheesemaking at Hampstead

Children at Hampstead Elementary made fresh Ricotta cheese at school this week. Carefully following a recipe, milk was boiled and citric acid added to curdle it. After cooling, the cheese was scooped into small draining baskets and stored in the refrigerator, ready for tasting the following day!
