Wow there was a time that we were given boxes of powdered whey that we added water to make a milk-like drink. So that is what we were drinking!jerzeygurl said:the "water" is called whey
to make a thicker yogurt add either powdered milk or gelatin or both before heating the milk, also holding the milk at 180 for 45 min will help as well
there are lots of uses for whey
there is a thread about it on the dairy forum in the homemaking section
I think it's called whey, and I use it as a sub for milk and/or water in some of my baking I also drain my yogurt sometimes.Nancy said:Does anyone drain yogurt to make it thicker and if so is the water that drains good for drinking or some other use?
