Cheesemaking Part 5 of 5:Secret Joy

Here is the lovely leftover whey. It is sort of an ethereal green that reminds me of absinthe. I like to drink it very cold. The sourness is refreshing, and it has sort of a creamy aftertaste.

Once, on the advice of some maven, I combined whey with Tang® and put it in the ‘fridge. My kids were very excited because I don’t buy soft drinks. They thought it was orangeade and promptly had a glass. Copious spewing and long-lasting acrimony were the result. To this day I have to stifle an evil grin when the subject comes up. Perhaps, if they are properly indoctrinated, I can serve this eclectic combo to my as-yet hypothetical grandchildren.
