Home Made Yogurt

I have the Euro Cuisine yogurt maker. Its small and cute and works like a dream. This is based off of their recipe.

Since its a time sensitive (and temperature sensitive) project, get your glass jars and utensils ready ahead of time. Heres the extra things you need to have thoroughly washed, dried and ready:

  • Sauce pan with high sides
  • Large metal spoon
  • Thermometer
  • 1/2 Cup Measuring Cup (for yogurt)
  • Large Pyrex (to measure milk and to mix starter)
  • Heat Proof Glass pitcher (to mix the final concoction and pour into jars)
  • Glass jars and lids for yogurt maker
  •  Fage Total yogurt (used as the starter)
  • 1 Qt. organic whole milk
  • (Optional flavoring)


  1. Measure out a quart of Pasteurized Organic Whole Milk into a sauce pan.
  2. Heat the milk slowly just until it starts to boil and climb the sides of the pan.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the milk to cool to 95 degrees. (to accelerate the process, but the pan in a cold water bath). Pour into glass pitcher.
  4. Stir 1/2 Cup of the starter yogurt with a bit of the heated milk in the large pyrex. Combine really well.
  5. Pour starter mixture into the pitcher
  6. Stir really well again. (Add fruit, syrup or flavoring now and stir well)
  7. Pour yogurt mixture into jars and put in yogurt maker (without lids)
  8. Let yogurt maker do its thing for 9 hours
  9. Take yogurt jars out, put on lids and refrigerate yogurt for a couple hours before eating.
Other Flavors to try:
Lemon (use lemon curd from Trader Joes?)
Coconut (use coconut milk and shredded/sweetened coconut?)
