Making Homemade Yogurt

Making Homemade Yogurt


  • If you go to a good health-food store (or even a decent supermarket)
  • you will be able to buy packets of yogurt culture, complete with
  • instructions on the back. A fancy yogurt machine is not required
  • - just make sure that everything is clean and follow the directions
  • closely.


Greek-style yogurt is generally quite thick. I accomplish this by spooning my freshly-made yogurt into a cheesecloth bag which is then placed in a sieve over a large bowl with everything going into the refrigerator for 24 hours. Most of the whey drains away, leaving thick, creamy yogurt that is incredible is texture and flavour. Be prepared to lose half of your volume in whey. Alternatively, you can buy good-quality plain yogurt at the store and follow the same process. Just remember to buy twice as much as you need to accommodate for the loss due to drainage. Greek Yoghurt with Honey and Walnuts 1 cup plain yogurt prepared as above 2 Tbsp. chopped walnuts 2 Tbsp. honey cinnamon Spoon the yogurt into a bowl and drizzle the honey over the top. Sprinkle with the chopped walnuts and dust with cinnamon.
