Yogurt is one of the most “value added” foods you can made at home. In my previous video I showed you how simple it is to make yogurt at home from the best milk available. You can take this one step further by dripping the yogurt to produce two more valuable, cultured food items. They are whey and yogurt cheese. Whey is the liquid that drips out of the yogurt and may be used as an inoculate for many other fermented items. It contains billions of beneficial bacteria. Yogurt cheese is the solid mass left after the whey is dripped out. It, too, is full of beneficial bacteria and is delicious!
Many people that have trouble digesting milk (even raw milk) may be able to tolerate dripped yogurt or yogurt cheese. This is true for people on the SCD or GAPS diets who may be sensitive to dairy. As they are slowly reintroducing dairy foods, dripped yogurt may be one of the first products to try. I myself find that I can tolerate dripped yogurt better than full yogurt.
