HOMEMADE YOGURT PART II
My dear friends, I first of all want to start out by saying thank you,for sticking with for the last 6 months. So much had being going on, even at times I was lost, but now finally everything has settle down and everything is in place. Thank god. Now my little angle is 5 months and counting, shes growing so quickly and each day I love her more and more. She is the apple of eye rather of our eyes, she has many friends and admirers already. She has become our little social butterfly. I believe she just can not wait to grow up – when she sees children running and playing she watches them with deep admiration. Silly girl, mommy does not want you to grow up. More like silly me, wishing such wishes.
Well, if she wants to grow, she much eat and drink lots and lots of milk, which is something she is really good at. I wanted to make this return post a bit special, something authentic and very Turkish. Well nothing says it better then two jars of homemade yogurt. I had described in detail on how to make home made yogurt, lets make these an addition to that posting. Instead of fermenting the milk in a pot, this time I fermented the milk into two jars purchased from Ikea. Plus it takes up less space in the fridge and looks incredibly irrestible.
If you think you have made too much yogurt, which I highly doubt. In any case, if you think its too much yogurt for you, try these delicious orange and yogurt cake or this olive oil and yogurt cake. At one point in time, I made these cakes severals times during the week.
Whole milk creates a butter like texture on top of the yogurt. Go ahead & spoon it!
It does look delicious doesn’t it?
Or maybe you would like to take the whole jar and start spooning away!
Recipe is available here – just a few notes to make the yogurt in the jar.
Once the milk has cooled down, spoon the created layer of buttery goodness to a plate.
Pour milk into the jars.
Add in your starter (fermenting) yogurt and give it a stir. DO NOT COVER WITH LID.
Dividing evenly, place back the spooned layer of buttery goodness on top.
Place in a warm (draft free) area of your kitchen and cover tightly with kitchen blankets.
Leave over night or day on kitchen counter.
Place into the fridge again WITHOUT THE COVER for 1 (one) day.
Place cover after one full day in fridge and serve!
For this recipe I used 1 gallon of milk and doubled my yogurt starter.
I make my yogurt using 100% whole milk it can also be made with 2% milk. Visit these websites for various recipes of how to make yogurt at home.
