    hunt and fish like your ancestors

    or be a farmer

    or get some chickens

    or make whey/cheese from milk

    where there's a will there's a way

        Whey is just a byproduct of making cheese.

        Making cheese is a European tradition.

        Some cheese is very easy to make at home.

        My ancestors made cheese so their milk would last longer. The Germanic peoples of Northern Europe. That's why we got so tall.

        Yes. Every ~2 weeks I make a bunch of yogurt (all you need is a crock pot, some already made yogurt, and at least half a gallon of milk). After the stuff has finished fermenting, you strain it and are left with liquid whey. Collect enough of it, dehydrated it, and voila you've got your own protein powder without paying a premium for it. Essentially a cyclical protein economy.

          Or you can make ricotta with whey but the output is pretty pitiful. I need to get back to cheesemaking. Gotta get some baskets.

            Never made ricotta before. Is it made with any rennet?
            The reason I like the yogurt is it's a largely inactive process and you simply reserve a bit from the previous batch to make the new one. If you strain it long enough, you get greek-style yogurt which leaves you with a pretty solid amount of whey. I have a small crockpot and can only make a half gallon of milk at a time, but I get almost a full liter of whey from the process.

              No, ricotta isn’t made from rennet. You use acid And heat to break the milk and strain the solids out from the whey.

                You're thinking of Hispanic queso fresco not ricotta.

                You’re straight up wrong brother. I’ve made so much ricotta in my life.

                Okay but you can make it from whey. It's not very effective but it does work.

                Ricotta can be made with whole milk or the whey from making cheese but I've only done it the latter way. All you do is heat it to very high temperature and at citric acid or vinegar then the ricotta rises to the top and you skim it off. I got a couple spoonfuls from the whey of what had been a gallon of milk before making cheese. New England Cheese supply website is a great resource for cheese recipes and stuff btw

                Good to know. I live in a shitty bug apartment, but I'm saving some money to move to a more rural part of my state and want to set myself to be more self-sustaining and a minor barter community with people nearby. I try and make as much stuff as I can by hand and with minimal tooling (in case SHTF knocks out power) but I'm just getting my feet wet here.

                You know people don't barter in the countryside right. I assume you're American. People will give each other things occasionally but it's not "I'll give you this for that" it's "oh here I made cookies have some" then sometimes unspoken reciprocation. I mean, that would change given serious economic catastrophe but rural Americans aren't set up for local economy any more than city or suburban people.

                I live in the south, though in a middle class/upper middle economic area, and there are plenty of rural wannabes involved in exchanges. My mom would trade shit all the time with neighbors (e.g., trading eggs she had for goat milk from neighbors). I'm not saying it's going to be a thriving sustained economy, but having some specialized knowledge/activities can yield more effective sharing between otherwise isolated parties.

      they cost very very little for the rancher who grew the beef

      typically, stuff you get from farmer's markets is substantially cheaper as well

      but they don't have processed foods like grocery stores do

    Get a cosco membership. They sell ground beef that’s 12% fat so it’s lean enough and it’s 2.99/lb. Pair this with one of their 25lb bags of rice and you’re set

      Brotip -- for a similar price point, you can get the 91% lean ground beef that's in frozen logs.
