First time making rennet cheese today. Had a total blast making motza with my friend. Now I have a big pot of whey left over. What to do with it?

Of course, one could feed it to the hens, they do appreciate it.

Instead, we heated up the whey and made ricotta cheese. Two cheeses for the price of one.

The rest of the whey will go into bread baking.

What do you do with your whey?

I made Paneer cheese and used the leftover whey to cook potatoes in for mashed potatoes.

Since I used lemon juice for making the Paneer, they had a wonderful, slightly tangy hint of flavor.

I've been wondering if any of you have made a whey spray for fruit trees? I've heard of it and would love to have a "recipe" for it.

Whey-ade, add lemon or lime juice to the whey, sweeten to taste.

ricotta (though the yield is so small I don't do it, it's the traditional way to make ricotta

make bread, cook grains, use as soup base, smoothies, ferment vegetables.

I know there are lots more things to do but I feed the whey to the chickens, cats and dogs. A household of one, making 10-20 pounds of cheese per week, no whey I could run that through MY diet.

It has a lot of lactose remaining, and I avoid carbohydrates too.
