I was thrilled when Alan at VMC
said he would send me a Yogourmet Yogurt Maker
. In the package was a YoGourmet Yogurt Maker, a thermometer, a cheese bag, Kefir starter, Yogurt Starter, Yogurt w/ Probiotics starter, probiotic tablets, and liquid rennet. I had been hearing about all the extra chemicals, preservative, and sugars they add to store bought yogurt. I wanted a chance t
o learn how to make my own yogurt. I had never even attempted to make yogurt before. I was a little intimidated at first when it arrived. I decided to pick up Whole Organic Milk to make yogurt out with. You have to warm the milk to 110 degrees. This would have been much simpler had I realized that was the same as 42-44 the green area on the thermometer. I guess I should actually read and pay attention to the directions- Hee hee. Once I realized it I had heated the milk up way to high and had to cool it down. If I had paid attention I would have realized they make it really easy by marking the temperature on the thermometer with a green area. Cooled the milk down. That is the hardest part of making this yogurt and it wasn’t really wha
t I would consider to be hard. It takes 4 1/2 hours for the yogurt maker to turn it into yogurt then you cool it for 8 hours in the fridge. I couldn’t wait to try it and see if I had messed it up. The first thing I did when I woke up was grab the container out of the fridge and make myself a bowl. I don’t usually care for plain yogurt. But this had a much richer taste. I was surprised how much better it tasted. And it’s healthier for me!! I LOVE this ! Don’t be intimidated it is really easy to make and worth the few minutes it takes to warm the milk.
