Make the Most of Your Whey
If you're a home cheesemaker, you've likely dumped at least a few cups of excess whey down the sink. But why waste it, when there are so many uses for the flavorful liquid? John Proestakes of John Eats Cheese provides several handy ways to use up extra whey (sour whey, too!) that you may not know about.
Whey is basically flavored water, so you can use it in most places you would have to pour out several cups of plain old water. Consider using whey to boil potatoes, prepare pastas, rice, oatmeal, and quinoa.
You can also use whey as a basis for marinades and creating stocks for soups and stews, soaking grains, and rehydrating beans.
