My friend Pindi's family is from India and she shared a really simple way to make yogurt with me. Every week, I have been making a batch for my family that we use for soups, dressings, breakfasts and snacks.
I have used several different methods in making yogurt in the past and most often the end result was a little too sour for my likings. This recipe makes a wonderful creamy yogurt that will have you making yogurt every week! Give it a try.
what you'll need
1 quart of organic whole milk
2 Tbsp of yogurt (your culture)
1 quart canning jar
2 dish towels
-pre-heat your oven to 265 degrees, when up to heat, turn off
-heat up your milk and remove from heat just as it starts to boil
-let it cool down until it is luke warm
-Pour the milk into your jar
-add your yogurt starter and stir
-put the lid on your jar and wrap jar in 2 dish towels
