Home Made Yoghurt....

I have been making yoghurt for a while, so part of the come home thing to do is to make a new batch of yoghurt.

I've been away for 3 weeks so I didn't have any yoghurt left from my last batch, so I bought a small tub - 200ml of natural yoghurt as starter.

Making yoghurt is relatively simple, and I normally make plain flavour yoghurt as I can use it for dips, marinate meats or add a bit of home made jam and fruit or honey, as brekky.

2L Full Cream Milk
200ml natural yoghurt (plain)

Boil the milk in pot until scalding.

Cool the milk in cold water or just leave it as is till around 110F, or 43C.

Add in the yoghurt.

Put it in Thermo Pot to keep temperature the same for 8-10 hours.  You will see the yoghurt forming and solidifying.

I usually make 1L at a time and normally takes about 5-7 hours.

When the yoghurt is made, put in the pots or any fridge friendly jars etc and keep at the back of the fridge, it will keep for 2-3 weeks, label them if need to....  And leave some for the next batch of yoghurt.

No additives, no artificial flavouring... you don't need gelatine or starsh to set your yoghurt.... Enjoy.
