The Whey of It

Sweet whey with rennet curds

When reproducing cheesemaking with rennet, there is a large quantiy of sweet whey remaining after the curd has been gathered with a linen cheese cloth and cheese basket.  This whey contains some proteins that are nutritionally complete, lactose, water soluble vitamins and minerals but is about ninety percent water.  If you are making historic cheeses with rennet, please comment and share what you are doing with the whey.
