Whipped Fresh Sheep’s Milk Ricotta with Frozen Blueberries

by Laura on March 27, 2011

My Honey Girl and I attended a cheesemaking class with Jodi Ohlsen Read of Shepherd’s Way Farms yesterday, at a charming shop in St. Paul called Egg Plant Urban Farm Supply.  I’m totally smitten.  They stock baby chicks(!), chicken coop, gardening, cheesemaking, canning, and maple syrupping supplies, and more.  It’s a small retail space, but I could have spent hours there, browsing the tasteful and intelligent selection of useful bits and bobs.  During the class, as an aside, Jodi described a dessert she had made with some of her fresh sheep’s milk ricotta.  Um, yes please.  And thank you may I have another.  Here it is.  Simple, savory, buttery, creamy, with a pop from the sweet blueberries, it’s a cheese course died and gone to heaven.  Note: Describe what you are serving to your family or guests, lest, like my Dear Husband, they have a moment where they imagine something has gone terribly, terribly wrong with the whipped cream until understanding dawns and an expression of bliss spreads.

Yum! This looks so light and fresh. I bet it would be great with a drizzle of honey instead of sugar. I love ricotta!

Sakes alive does this dessert look good.

And I love that you attended a cheese making class – this is totally on my bucket list.
