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
- 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)
- Measure out a quart of Pasteurized Organic Whole Milk into a sauce pan.
- Heat the milk slowly just until it starts to boil and climb the sides of the pan.
- 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.
- Stir 1/2 Cup of the starter yogurt with a bit of the heated milk in the large pyrex. Combine really well.
- Pour starter mixture into the pitcher
- Stir really well again. (Add fruit, syrup or flavoring now and stir well)
- Pour yogurt mixture into jars and put in yogurt maker (without lids)
- Let yogurt maker do its thing for 9 hours
- Take yogurt jars out, put on lids and refrigerate yogurt for a couple hours before eating.
