The process of making yogurt is very similar to cream cheese. I have seen many different recipes for yogurt. Most use yogurt to make yogurt. I didn’t want to do this because I want to know each and every ingredient in my yogurt. The reason most use yogurt to make yogurt is to get the enzymes (cultures) in the new batch. I use rennet for those enzymes. I picked up some rennet while I was in Denver. They had it at the beer making supply store. I would have never thought to look there, but after some phone calls that’s where we learned carried it. So I took a pregnant woman to the beer making store to get rennet.
Yogurt does take some time to make so some planning is required. It will take 10 – 12 hours to curdle. I start mine first thing in the morning or last thing at night so I’m not up in the middle of the night tending to it. And it will take a little time to strain. Although yogurt doesn’t take much time to strain compared to cream cheese, but if you strain it just a little longer you get Greek yogurt.
If you want a tangier yogurt, allow to sit for 1 hour instead of 30 minutes. As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
