Acidity-Added Ricotta
a.k.a. queso fresco
From: The Hip Girl's Guide to the Kitchen

Heat any quantity of milk (can be soured, or about to go bad)to 180°F and remove from heat.
For 1 quart or less milk, add 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar or lemon juice; for any amount over 1 quart, add 1 tablespoon.
Curds and whey should begin separating immediately.
Stir gently for a minute to facilitate congealing.
Strain ricotta through dampened cheesecloth for 5 minutes, or up to 20 minutes if you want a superdry cheese.
