How to make yogurt:
A great way of making homemade yogurt. It very simple and really economical. It is essential to have live yogurt.


1 pint of whole or skimmed milk
1 tablespoons live natural yogurt (containing Lacto Bacillus Bulgaricus)
(see measure conversions for more information)


- Bring the milk to the boil and then simmer for about two minutes.
- Allow to cool until it is between 100-125 degrees Fahrenheit (see temperature conversions) (use a cooking thermometer).
- Skim off any skin which may have risen to the top of the milk and then whisk the live yogurt into the milk.
- Put the mixture into a large thermos flask, screw the lid on and leave for up to 7 hours.
- Some whey will settle at the top of the yogurt.
- Pour this off and store the yogurt in a bowl in the fridge.
- More batches of yogurt can be made from this but it is best to do it within a few days.
