Homemade Yogurt

It's so easy. Especially with this maker and this thermometer/timer.

  1. Heat 40oz of 2% or Whole milk in a saucepan until it starts to boil (180*F) for a couple minutes.
  2. Let it cool to lukewarm (110*F). If you're in a hurry, put the saucepan in cold water, but it doesn't turn out as good.
  3. Stir half the milk in a bowl with 3/4 cup of plain yogurt. You'll feel it start to thicken already! Add the other half.
  4. Pour into cups. Leave alone for 8 hours (for Whole) or 9 hours (for 2%).
  5. Refrigerate and enjoy!

    You can add fruit, jam, or other flavorings before filling the jars, but I don't. We like to add our own flavorings afterward. I mostly eat it plain or sprinkle some cinnamon on it. We love to eat it with rice and curry.

Just make sure you start it at a reasonable hour or you'll have to set an alarm. Oh, and don't use Skim milk. Learning to wife!

How do you make/like your yogurt?


  1. Mmmm, mmm good! Looks awesome. Memories....
    So, did you start too late and that is why the sticky says 4:30am? :)

  2. Yes.. It's horrible. I've done it a few times. And you absolutely cannot forget it or you'll end up with really bad tasting cottage cheese or I don't know what. :)


how 'bout this...
