For today’s Sweet Sunday, I’m going to share with you a pretty darn sweet snack- Yogurt. Yes, I finally got to use my new yogurt maker. It’s super easy, and while I’m not entirely pleased with the texture (whole milk wasn’t quite thick enough for my liking), I discovered that Royal Crest makes a rich and creamy milk used especially for cooking which I can’t wait to get my hands on!
– 1.3 liters of whole milk
– 5 grams of yogurt cultures
(Yep, that’s it!)
I boiled my milk in a pot until it started climbing the sides- this ensures a thicker yogurt vs. a more European yogurt that you drink. Set the pot of milk in a sink of cold water to cool the milk to room temp. Mix one cup of the luke warm milk in with your 5 grams of culture, then whisk the one cup into the rest of the milk and pour into the yogurt maker’s glass jars. Stick the jars onto your yogurt maker, turn it on, and check back in eight hours. That’s it! I also made some strawberry jam with sugarless pectine and honey that I’ll stir into my yogurt for flavor. Yum!
My homemade strawberry jam wasn’t interesting enough to share, but if you’d like to check it out for yourself, it’s really quick and easy! I just substituted the 1 cup of sugar with 3/4 cup of raw honey in order to avoid the processed sugars. Bread Machine Jam!
Ah, how sweet.
