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.
