    Leftover Whey from Mozzarella?

    I have a friend who has a gallon of whey left from making fresh mozzarella...she's hoping there is something interesting to make with it instead of tossing it.

    I've never heard of anything, but hoped one of our KKFers would have an idea...

    ricotta http://www.sbcanning.com/2012/04/hom...m-whey-of.html


    you can also use it in stock production instead of water to give yourself a richer stock.
    you can add it to your ladies bath water to give her smoother moisturized skin.
    It's good in the garden.
    You can mix it in lemonade and add vodka an ice for a very interesting and refreshing drink
    add it to muddleds strawberries and mint, rum , simple syrup over the rocks
    add to smoothies

    Oh snap, I'm glad you asked this. I just dumped it last time.
    Never again!

    Ricotta. Definitely! Make mozz and you get two cheeses for the price of one!

    I was at Mike's house dropping off a knife, and he was making mozz. Wow! I have soooo much to learn. You pro's amaze me.

    Yep, again with the ricotta. I also use it to make these: http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/214...n-hoagie-rolls
    Also like using it in salsa.

    steeped it with chile's, lemongrass, curry leaves and powder, reduced a bit and served with fresh shucked oysters. Also use it in soups, but will now try these drink options...
