This video is a request from a reader. Thanks Rick for the great suggestion!
Please also see the poll box just to the right of this post. Please vote for the topic of next week’s video. I will be using the liquid whey that I make in the video today.
REAL Liquid Whey
Making real, liquid whey in your own kitchen is a MUST step for any traditional cook to learn. Without liquid whey, many other traditional recipes cannot even be attempted. You cannot buy liquid whey from the store except in a denatured, unhealthy, powdered form, so make sure you take the time to implement what I show you in this video. In subsequent videos, I will show you how to use this liquid whey to make many delicious, healthful recipes for your family. Liquid whey as shown in this video will keep up to 6 months in the refrigerator in a glass mason jar.
If you absolutely have no access to farm fresh milk to make your whey, then you can use plain, organic yogurt instead and do pretty much exactly the same thing as shown in the video. You won’t get nearly as much whey using yogurt as clabbered, farm fresh milk, but at least you can get enough to get you started. My favorite brand of yogurt from the store is Seven Stars. The milk used to make this brand of biodynamic, organic yogurt comes from old fashioned, grassfed jersey or guernsey cows.
REAL Cream Cheese
The raw, enzyme rich strawberry cream cheese I make in the video is fantastic on a sourdough or sprouted bagel for breakfast. French Meadow makes a fantastic, spelt sourdough bagel. Food for Life has an excellent seven grain sprouted English muffin too (don’t buy the Ezekiel sprouted muffins as that one has soy).
To make, just take your cream cheese left over from making liquid whey and add a few strawberries and a dash of Grade B maple syrup to taste. Mix together by pulsing a few times in your food processor. This wonderful, fresh, REAL strawberry cream cheese will last one to two weeks in the refrigerator. You will turn up your nose to the fake, Philadelphia strawberry cream cheese after trying this truly healthy, probiotic laden, homemade version.
No Access to Raw Milk? No problem. Click here for a video on how to separate liquid whey from a container of plain yogurt from the store.
