Homemade Yoghurt

Yoghurt is one of those things that is not only much cheaper to make at home, but is also quite easy to make. If you do decide to try making yoghurt at home I highly suggest that you invest in a food thermometer to make sure you get good yoghurt results every time. Also, as with most things in cooking, good quality ingredients are essential to a good product.

If, like me, you are fortunate enough to have access to some ahimsa milk from cows that are happily grazing outside, then this milk makes the absolute best yoghurt. However, any good quality organic milk will do quite a good job. You do need to buy some yoghurt or some yoghurt cultures in order to make yoghurt at home. I usually purchase a little pot of good quality, organic plain yoghurt which is readily available at shops nearby.

You can take the short cut and purchase a yoghurt maker, which controls all of the temperatures and timing, but it isn’t necessary. I prefer this simpler method, rather than have yet another electrical device taking up space in my kitchen.


Great recipe!

Another little tip thats always worked for me when making yogurt, is when I have no thermometer I put my pinky(clean hands of course) and if it can stand it for 10seconds I add the yogurt mix. I've been making yogurt since I was around 12 years old and that has never failed.

Thanks for the tip. I am

Thanks for the tip. I am fairly new to the yoghurt making world but when I get braver or do not have access to a thermometer I will be sure to try the "clean pinky" tip :).
