Homemade Yogurt - 2 Ingredients, 3 Steps

6:55 AM

Homemade yogurt is a money saver but what you might not know is that it's also much more delicious. The tang is more mellow and it's always creamy, never goopy. If you follow my lead you can make it using only 2 ingredients and 3 easy steps. Oh and once you've made a batch, that yogurt gets used to make your next batch, so you'll be making it with only one ingredient. Now that's easy.

You'll need:

  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 Tablespoons of natural yogurt*

* Use something with minimal ingredients: cream, milk, bacterial culture. Next time you make it, use your homemade yogurt as the 2nd ingredient.

Step one:

Heat the milk in a saucepan over low heat until it reads 185 degrees F. Keep it there for 20 minutes.

Step two:

Put the saucepan into ice water so that you can bring the temperature down to 110 degrees F. At this point you can stir in the 2 Tablespoons of yogurt.

Step three:

Pour into a mason jar and keep slightly warmer than room temperature for about 10 hours. This can be in the oven with the light on, or the microwave with the light on. Or on top of your fridge if it's warm up there. Or in a sun room during a summer day. To keep your jar warm you can wrap it in a kitchen towel.

There you have it! At this point you can put it in the fridge and it's ready to eat. Feel free to add your favourite sweetener. Just remember to save 2 Tablespoons for your next batch.

This will cost you about 75 cents in milk. Not bad compared to $2.99 for yogurt!
