Whey! A Staple in the Traditional Kitchen.

For centuries whey was a staple in every kitchen. It was thought of as a magical healing elixir and promoted by Hippocrates. Today whey is being rediscovered and sought out for its myriad health benefits. Most people are familiar with the more highly processed whey powders available. Our whey comes much more directly from its original source, derived from organic milk produced by cows who graze the seaside pastures of our family farm. It is the by-product of our yogurt-making, and comes to you pure, natural, and unadulterated.

What can you do with whey?

  • Make your own alternative energy drink: Mix one part whey to four parts water, add the juice of one lemon, and sweeten with maple syrup. For variations on this add fresh ginger, mint, herb teas, apple cider vinegar or sipping shrubs. You can even add alcohol for a unique twist at cocktail hour.
  • Add to smoothies for a probiotic boost.
  • Soak grains before cooking: add a splash of whey to your rice, quinoa, wheat berries, oats, etc. It begins a fermentation process that aids in nutrition absorption and digestion.
  • Bake bread with whey.
  • Use it as a starter in sauerkraut, kim chi, and other fermented veggies.
  • For body care, use it as a nourishing hair rinse and facial toner.
  • The list goes on . . . .

  1. Rachel –

    I just re-subscribed to the Tide Mill newsletter because I hadn’t had a mailing in at least a year. And leafing through the latest (on whey), I found *The Gift* – that I hadn’t seen. My wife and I used to read and save all your poetic musings; now that she is gone – dead at 64 of clinical depression after a lifetime of struggle – your poetry is all the more necessary to me. Do you have a collection of your work – a book, perhaps?

    I very much hope your essential mailings will resume.

    Thanks!
