homemade riccota cheese

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

This morning I made homemade ricotta cheese.  Actually, i guess it is paneer since I made it from milk and not whey.  Anyway, after the cheese seperated from the milk - totally yummy by the way - I have a TON of whey left over.  The 2 cups of milk yeilded maybe a 1/4 cup of ricotta cheese.  At least it is organic with no additives, but still - not a whole lot.  What can i do with the remaining whey?  I know I cannot "double dip" on the whey - I cant use it again for ricotta because it has already been heated.  But, what else can I do with it?  I dont want to waste it.

I used to just throw it outside on my plants, though I know that's not what you're looking for. I always used a gallon of milk to make enough cheese for one dinner.

You can use the whey to make oatmeal or as a basis for soup.
