a good tip is that u put ure pinky finger inside the milk if u are able to hold it there to the count of ten but no longer than 10 then it is time to add the yogurt... also u only put it in cloth if u are making labneh but dont do this for laban


  1. Place a couple of tablespoons of the milk in a small container and stir in the yogurt to make it more liquid.
  2. Bring milk to a boil. Place aside until lukewarm.
  3. Stir in yogurt (don't stir too much). Cover pot with lid. Wrap pot with a wool cover. Place in a warm place for 6 hours. Be careful not to move the pot during this time.
  4. Cool in refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
