Hey everyone, hope you are having an amazing day today. Today, we’re going to make a special dish, homemade yoghurt. It is one of my favorites food recipes. This time, I’m gonna make it a bit tasty. This is gonna smell and look delicious.
To get started with this recipe, we have to prepare a few components. You can have homemade yoghurt using 7 ingredients and 11 steps. Here is how you cook that.
The ingredients needed to make Homemade Yoghurt:
- Make ready 1 liter (1 qt) whole milk
- Make ready 1 Tbsp plain yoghurt with active cultures
- Take Tools/Equipment:
- Take 1 Thermometer to measure temperature of milk
- Take 1-4 Jars or containers to hold your 1 liter of milk/yoghurt (I use a 1 liter jar, but you can use 2-4 smaller ones)
- Make ready 1 Insulated cooler, lunchbox, etc. to use as an "incubator" to keep your yoghurt warm while it's culturing. I use 2 soft insulated lunch boxes, putting one inside the other
- Prepare 1 thermos that can hold some hot water to help warm your "incubator"
Steps to make Homemade Yoghurt:
- Heat milk over low heat to 82°C/180°F. Stir frequently.
- Remove from heat and let milk cool to 43-46°C (110-115°F). Meanwhile let 1 Tbsp of the regular yoghurt come to room temperature. Also prep your equipment as below if you don't have a special "yoghurt maker" or incubator.
- As your milk is getting closer to the correct temperature, prepare your containers, thermos, etc. I put hot water in my jars so they warm up and don't cause the milk temperature to drop when I pour in the milk.
- I don't have an incubator so I use an insulated cooler. I pour boiling water into a smaller thermos cup, put the lid on and put it inside the cooler. I close to cooler to let it warm up when the milk is getting close to cooling down.
- When the yoghurt reaches the correct temperature of 43-46°C (110-115°F), mix in the 1 Tbsp of regular yoghurt that you let come to room temperature.
- Pour the hot water out of your yoghurt container(s) and then pour in the milk. Close the lid.
- Put the filled container(s) into your homemade "incubator" or yoghurt maker, and close the lid.
- To help the temperature stay warm, I wrap my insulated coolers in 2 towels.
- Let the milk incubate for 6-8 hours, without disturbing the incubator or containers. After 6-8 hours, when you open it up, you'll see that your milk has magically turned into yoghurt! Remove from the incubator and cool before eating.
- Note: Don't let it incubate for too long or the yoghurt will curdle instead.
- To make your next catch, keep one tablespoon of the yogurt aside, and repeat all the steps!
You can make similar alterations with the oils that you use for cooking. For instance, monounsaturated fat such as olive oil can help counter the bad cholesterol in your diet. It also is a good source of vitamin E which is beneficial for your skin, among other things. If you presently are consuming lots of fresh fruits and leafy greens, you may want to think about where you’re getting them and if it’s the best source. If you can opt for organic foods, you can avoid the problem of ingesting crops that may have been sprayed with harmful pesticides. Looking for a local supplier of fresh fruits and veggies will give you the choice of eating foods that still have virtually all of the nutrients which are often lost when produce has been kept in storage before it is sold. Hence, it should be quite obvious that it’s easy to add healthy eating to your life.
