Recipe for yogurt using either pure or extended fresh starter.



Heat one quart of milk to 180°F. Cool the milk to 115°F then add 1/8 teaspoon of either pure or extended yogurt culture. Stir it in gently making sure it is completely dissolved. Hold the temperature at between105 – 110°F for about 8 hours. You may adjust the time more or less depending on how tart you want the flavor to be. Once your yogurt has reached the desired flavor and texture it must be refrigerated.

Tasty Tips:

To make yogurt with added body and protein add ½ cup of nonfat powdered milk (either cow or goat) before the initial heating and/or hold the milk at 180°F for 30 minutes before cooling.

For enhanced flavor add a few drops of vanilla extract when adding the culture. You can try other flavored extracts as well such as banana, almond, etc. or a teaspoon of instant coffee or espresso powder.
