How To Make Yogurt
You Will Need
  • 1 qt. milk
  • 1/4 c. yogurt starter
  • Raisins or fruit
  • Candy thermometer
  • Clean containers
  • Incubator
step 1Measure milk
Measure and pour the milk into a large pot. Using a candy thermometer, make sure the milk is heated to 185 degrees; then allow it to cool to 110 degrees.
spacer tip Use any type of milk you prefer to make the yogurt including cow, goat, horse, sheep, yak, or even water buffalo milk.
step 2Add yogurt culture
Add unflavored active yogurt culture as a starter to the milk and stir well with a spoon.
spacer tip Yogurt starter cultures may be purchased at a natural foods store, or use a commercial plain cultured yogurt from the grocer as a starter.
step 3Pour into containers
Pour the milk into clean containers for incubating.
step 4Incubate the milk
Incubate the milk. This can be done in a number of ways; you can incubate the milk in a covered thermos, place filled containers in a 110-degree Fahrenheit oven, set filled containers on a heating pad and cover with towels, or place in a commercial incubator.
step 5Wait
Wait for up to 12 hours for the yogurt to firm, keeping in mind that the longer the incubation period, the more tart your yogurt will taste.
step 6Refrigerate
Refrigerate the yogurt until you are ready to serve, then present plain, sweetened with raisins or fruit, added to smoothies. Watch your yogurt become a family favorite.
