Here's how to make your own homemade, raw, organic yogurt. To get started, you'll need the following:
- 1 cup raw, organic milk (Use larger amount of milk for more yogurt, and increase ingredients accordingly)
- ¼ teaspoon yogurt starter (can purchase from Mercola.com)
- 1 drop animal rennet (optional; acidifies the yogurt for enhanced texture)
- a whisk
- liquid measuring cup
- medium-sized bowl
- a container (preferably glass) with a lid
This type of yogurt culture is fantastic stuff. In future videos, I'll show you some other great recipes it can be used in.
Let the yogurt-making magic begin! Simply do as follows:
- Sprinkle ¼ teaspoon yogurt starter onto 1 cup organic milk.
- Whisk thoroughly.
- For thicker yogurt, substitute some cream for part of the milk. (if you use all cream, you'll likely end up with sour cream).
- Add 1 drop animal rennet (optional).
- Whisk again to blend ingredients well.
- Pour mixture into glass container and cover with lid.
- Place container into your oven.
- Close door and turn on light bulb inside oven only.
- DO NOT TURN OVEN ON. Temp will reach approx 75° with light only.
- Keep inside oven overnight or for about 8-10 hours.
When yogurt's done in the morning, stick it in the fridge, and you'll have scrumptious, healthy yogurt by dinnertime!
Another method would be to use a couple of tablespoons of store-bought yogurt in your raw milk in place of powered starter culture, then continue with the above recipe. The disadvantage to this is, it's not technically raw because obviously, it's come from pasteurized yogurt.
The culture starter is a much better bet! Make it from scratch and know all the ingredients are wholesome. Enjoy it plain or jazz it up with some stevia, xylitol or fruit, and you're good to go! Delicious! Enjoy!
