While I don’t claim to be a foodie, certain foods make me just melt on the spot. One of those is definitely yoghurt. To satisfy my appetite, I made it my goal to learn how to make yoghurt right from my house. Guess what? I think I succeeded.
So today, I’m going to show you how to do the same at home in very easy steps.
Stay with me.
Easy Steps to Make the Yoghurt of Your Dreams
So I’m going to try to break it down into these steps. This makes things so much easier. Generally, you are going to need three things to pull this one-off.
So here’s the thing. To make it, you actually have to start with a starter yoghurt. The main aim of a starter yoghurt is to help you turn your milk (which we will mention too) into the final product you know.
To do this, you are going to need an active yoghurt starter. I’d suggest that you try all-natural Yoghurt Starter. It remains my number one pick as it just makes the process so much easier to deal with.
Some Important Equipment
You are also going to need somethings which we have branded as equipment. One of them will be your thermos flask. This will help you keep your milk and ingredients warm. Other things you will also need include a pan as well as utensils.
You might also need some jars to keep the excess after you are done.
You got a lot of options when it comes to milk. Using semi-thinned, whole or raw milk will all fit. However, I’d recommend that you go with whole milk. Whole milk just makes things easier and give you that thick cream that we all love.
So generally you will need
- Starter Yoghurt
- Milk- Raw, semi-thinned or whole milk
- Equipment such as pans, flask, jars and other utensils
Steps on How to make Yoghurt
Take a bit of your starter yoghurt and pour it into the flask. If you are making a small portion, you can add two tablespoons of the yoghurt starter.
Heat up about a liter of milk until it is almost boiling. Try to avoid the boiling point as it can get burnt really quickly.
Let your milk cool for a time. Let’s target cool enough to place a finger through the milk but still hot enough to feel the heat.
Pour your heated milk into the flask. You can start with a small portion and stir. Slowly add the remaining milk.
While doing this, make sure you remember to stir properly.
Place a lid over the flask. Allow it for about half a day. Try not to move your yoghurt around during this period. We surely do not want all our good work to be ruined.
To avoid this, make sure it is placed somewhere that sees less human interference.
Your yoghurt is very much ready. It’s that easy. I don’t know why I haven’t been doing this all my life!
Just make sure to store it in jars and in the fridge. If you want to take your yoghurt with other things, there’s always fluffy pancakes to make!
So here you have it! Making yoghurt is one of the easiest things you can do! Why not give it a try already?
