Here’s How You Can Make Your Own Yogurt At Home
Are you on a health conscious diet but you don’t trust the yogurt you could get at supermarkets and grocery stores? Well, you could make your own yogurt at home with just these simple steps! Continue reading to learn how you could do it:
You’ll need a lidded pot, a stirring spoon, a mixing bowl, towels, and a candy thermometer. For ingredients you’ll need 4 cups of whole or 2% milk and 1/4 cup premade plain yogurt.
In your pot, slowly bring the milk to a low boil at 180°F (82°C), while stirring regularly to keep it from scalding.
Remove it from heat and allow it to cool. If you have a thermometer, you will want the milk to be around 110°F (43°C).
In a mixing bowl, combine all of the premade plain yogurt with 1 cup of milk from the pot.
Stir the mixture back with the rest of the milk in the pot, and cover it with a lid.
Let it chill in a warm spot in your home or a turned-off oven in the covered pot for about 5 hours. To keep it warm, wrap it in towels.
Transfer the yogurt to an airtight container and chill it in the fridge for a few hours. And, you’re done!
There are also other ways to make yogurt at home that you could try out, like using a yogurt maker, an instant pot, or a slow cooker. A quick tip is to make sure you make them in small batches that you’re sure you could finish within a week or it’ll turn bad and go to waste!
