Any easy suggestions for what to do with the whey?

I have a question about step 5 on the recipe "Mozzarella" from Kmucci. It says:

"Place a colander on top of a bowl. Using a slotted spoon, lift the curds and place them into the colander to let the whey drain off. Lift the colander to keep draining. Using your hands, very gently press the curds into the colander to release more whey. You want to remove as much whey as possible while handling the curds as gently as possible. "

Instead of putting the fresh mozzarella in oil, the mozzarella can be put back into the whey and stored in the refrigerator.
