  • Leftover whey from yogurt making?

    Anyone have any ideas on what to do with the leftover whey from making yogurt? I've seen a few on the web, but was wondering if anyone here had any ideas? Thanks!

    homemade mayo preservative...if you add it to homemade mayo, it keeps for months instead of days. I have heard you can also make lacto-fermented pickles, veggies, etc.

      You can add it to some raw beets and make beet kvass. Lots of probiotics in that. Great spring tonic.

          There are tons of ideas in Sally Fallon's Nourishing Traditions cookbook. You can use whey to make all kinds of fermented foods (including ketchup, mayonnaise, and various salad dressings).

            Sauerkraut and lacto-fermented salsa are also great uses. and there are plenty of great recipes online. Most of the whey in our house generally gets used up in mayo, though.

              Make ricotta cheese or add it to a protein smoothie. I have a quart of whey in my fridge right now that I'm going to attempt to use for ricotta. I've never done it before, so I'll try to post my results. I have been putting a little bit in my daily smoothie, but not enough to make it too tangy.

                For me, the whole point of draining off the whey is to reduce the carb count in the yogurt.

                  Yes! You can do all kinds of things with it.

                  Once upon a time, I used it to soak flour, LOL. It took me a while to learn new uses for it.
