Homemade Yogurt

How I Make Homemade Yogurt

Josh Robinson 02/14/2014

1.) Bring 2quarts of milk, (whole, raw, 2%, 1%, goat, whatever just so it is animal milk) in a large sauce pan to the temperature of 185 degrees, being careful not to scorch.

2.) Remove from heat and let cool to approximately 110 degrees.

3.) I use an electric 2 quart yogurt maker. Although you can use a large plastic bowl placed in the oven with the light on.

4.) Put 1 cup of non flavored commercial yogurt, I use Greek, in the yogurt maker or bowel, mix 2 cups of cooled milk in with the yogurt and mix.

5.) Mix in the remaining milk with the mixture and mix well.

6.) Plug in the make or place the covered bowl in the oven with the light on.

7.) After 24 hours place internal bowl of yogurt maker or your bowl in the refrigerator wait 6 hours and enjoy.

Homemade Buttermilk

Homemade Buttermilk

· 1/2 cup cultured buttermilk (from the store or home cultured)

· 1 to 2 quarts skim,1%, 2%, or whole milk from the store or raw milk

· 1 clean, dry quart with a tight fitting two piece lid.

So easy if you blink you’ll miss how to do it.

Pour buttermilk ½ cup into your clean jar. Top off the jar with your plain milk.

Tightly screw lid to the jar and shake for 1 minute.

Place in a warm (but not hot) area out of direct sunlight, I use my kitchen counter.

Let it sit there for 24 hours, until thickened, all the lactose should be gone by then.

Refrigerate when thick. Use within two weeks.

If you re-culture this regularly, you can carry on re-culturing indefinitely.

I always feel like I’m beating the system when I do homemade stuff like this and who doesn’t love beating the system?
