Jamie Oliver's Homemade Yogurt

Jamie Oliver's Homemade Yogurt created by gailanng

Homemade yogurt is easy, versatile and healthy. The uses are endless - marinades, baking, desserts, breakfasts, great on top of spicy lamb, curry, rice, couscous etc. The natural live cultures in the yogurt turns the natural sugar in the milk into acid; which again causes the milk to thicken and turn slightly sharp/tangy. Cooking time does not include the 6-8 hours needed for the yogurt to set.

  • Place in the fridge to chill; it will keep for 1 week.

    No, no...nobody make this recipe. Make MINE. Wait, I don't even have a recipe for homemade yogurt. That's okay, make mine anyway. ;-) Worked perfectly and tastes fresher! Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.

    I made this in the evening and put it in my airing cupboard that one that the hot water tank is in wrapped in a towel to keep it cozy. I was desperate to see if it worked but I managed to wait till the next morning, and guess what it turned out great, nice and thick. I used whole milk as it was what I had but I am going to try semi skimmed next time and see how thick it turns out. Thanks for posting. Made for Honor thy Mother. The diabetic forum May 2011
