In the village, we get our milk fresh from the udders! (yes...those pink danglies like what my little girl use to refer) This can be either from the cow, sheep or goat!!
We have to pasturize the fresh milk by boiling it for a short while.
From here on, it's easy to carry on and turn it into yogurt!
Just let it cool a bit to lukewarm temperature . Test it with your little finger... and if you can stand the heat, then you are ready to drop in a tablespoon full of homemade or store bought yogurt. Mix it into the lukewarm milk. We often do 2 litres of fresh milk at a time.
Then, cover the container to retain the warmth and place it in a warm corner of the kitchen. After a few hours (even overnight), you'll notice that the milk has turned into yogurt consistency. You can save some of this yogurt to start your next batch of yogurt once again:)
My girls like to put plain yogurt into their toasted homemade bread for breakfast.
or, they will drop some fruit jam or any available fresh fruit with it...
Mix it in and we now call it fruity yogurt!
Which ever way you want to eat your yogurt...
A homemade yogurt is unbeatably the best and it's so easy to do!
The first time I did yogurt, I really thought I was so brilliant:) But really...everyone can be successful with it! Let's prove it!
