I'm also keen to start making my own yoghurt. I've got some starter, which I am going to add to organic milk. I'm also going to use yoghurt which has no additives to make another batch. Then I'll see which one is more to my liking.
If you would like to try making your own yoghurt, here is a recipe.
1 litre of milk
Approximately 2 tbsp live natural yoghurt OR
1 tsp Naturen yoghurt starter culture powder
How to make it
- Warm the milk to just below boiling, about 80C
- Then leave to cool until lukewarm, about 40C
- Stir in the starter culture or yoghurt, then mix well
- Leave in a warm (40C) place (a thermos is ideal) for about 12 hours until the yoghurt is formed
- Then refrigerate
If you'd like to learn more, we'll have another fermenting workshop in 2016. Meantime, I hope you have fun playing. Here are a few photos of the girls making sauerkraut at the last workshop.
