Yoghurt

Recipe Description

An easy recipe for natural set, thick yoghurt.

Ingredients

  • 1 litre UHT full cream milk
  • 250g skim milk powder
  • 200g natural set plain yoghurt

Methods/steps

  1. Ensure all utensils are well cleaned and pour boiling water over them before using.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the powdered milk into the UHT milk until well mixed.
  3. Add in the natural set yoghurt and whisk until well mixed.
  4. Pour into a clean 2 litre container that has a good seal.
  5. Leave to set in a hot place for about 12 hours.

Additional Tips

I have found that the best place to set   yoghurt is in the direct afternoon sun in the middle of summer from noon onwards. In cooler months I tend to place the container directly on top of the samovar set on low with a thick towel wrapped around to retain the heat.
