I'm new to raw milk

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just joined a raw milk co-op, got my first gallon yesterday! I just made some butter from the cream and now am wondering if there is some way to use up this whey. Any ideas? I thought I read someone baking with it once but I am not sure.

I think that what you have there is not whey, instead, it's buttermilk. Whatever that liquid is, I use it when making pancakes and it works well.

No ideas as I shake it all up and use it for the girls.

I was just bemoaning the lack of kosher raw butter today. I will have to try making some. duh!

Is it really buttermilk? I have a wonderful lemon buttermilk sorbet recipe and discovered a source for raw milk. This is very exciting.

I asked a friend who is into raw milk too and she thinks that is buttermilk. I guess we need an expert to clarify for us, he he he.

It's buttermilk, but unless you culture it, it's not quite the same as the buttermilk you'd buy from the store (the thicker stuff). It keeps for a long time, which is nice. I made a chocolate buttermilk cake for ds1's birthday, turned out very nice. Also used it for soaking grains instead of whey, in pancakes, just the usual. You can also make cream cheese with it apparently!
