Simple and quick technique on making cream cheese and whey from homemade yogurt
I made this quite a while ago also. To make mine stiffer I folded the cloth over the cream cheese then placed a quart jar full of water on it to press out more whey.
<p>My husband's aunt used to do this.&nbsp; It's cool huh? Excellent video (your kitchen looks very welcoming BTW) One question?&nbsp; What do you do with the whey?</p>
Hey thanks for the note! It is cool, yummy too! We have moved from that kitchen, in fact the trailer that the kitchen was in was destroyed this year under a huge pile of snow, very sad, luckily we had already moved to Vancouver when it happened!<br /> <br /> One of my favorite things to do with the whey is to just make it into a refreshing drink with a touch of sea salt and water and drink it all day. You can also use it to make lacto-fermented pickles or chutneys by adding a couple tablespoons I have some recipes for such things on <a href="http://www.helladelicious.com/category/recipes/fermentation-recipes/" rel="nofollow">www.helladelicious.com</a> and I will keep putting up more...good for your intestines too :-)<br />
Yeah the salt is a good idea. I made it once by infusing my yogurt with rosemary and then straining it! Boy that was a yummy dip...other herbs would be good too--basil, lemon verbena....
Coincidentally, we just made cream cheese and whey using this exact method the day before you posted! The results were excellent. I recommend mixing a bit of salt into the resulting cream cheese, though.
very interesting. Thanks@!
