Ricotta is an Italian whey cheese made from sheep, cow, goat, or Italian water buffalo milk whey left over from the production of cheese. The usage of left overs from the production might have resulted in the name ricotta, which means literally "recooked". Ricotta curds are creamy white and slightly sweet. Usually, ricotta is highly perishable, but it was already produced in the Bronze Age, where preservation of food was not as easy as nowadays due to the lack of chemicals.
