Famed cheesemonger Nora Singley (previously of Murray's Cheese and the Martha Stewart Show) has developed a habit of drinking whey, thanks to homemade ricotta. She swears by the stuff, praising both its taste and nutritional benefits. Hey, home cheesemakers, have YOU tried the stuff?
I think that whey speaks to the dairy- and cheese-lover in me. I'm not sure it's for everyone, honestly. But if you're a yogurt lover, you'll find whey slightly reminiscent of the tanginess in some plain varieties. It's just slightly sour, very hydrating, and super creamy, without actually containing any cream. The flavor is unique and straight-up satisfying.
