T for Tuesday Homemade Yoghurt


After hesitating for a long time and misplaced my candy thermometer , I bit the bullet and tried my hand at making homemade yoghurt. A coworker made his own and gave me some to try and it was glorious. So soft and silky and so good for you. We have some great milk here that still has the cream up the top so I used that. It comes from a farm up north and is as close to raw milk as is legal. The farm is called Maleny Diaries and is open for visits so one day when we venture up north we'll go visit to see where our milk comes from.


So this is the "incubator", I kept replenishing the hot water in the hot water bottle to keep it at an even warm temperature. It needs to be in here 12 hours.

This is after the 5 hours, when I put in new hot water. Looks so yummy.

So if you wanted to try making your own yoghurt here and here are the recipe.

It took 10 mins to heat up to 92C and 30 minutes to cool it back down to 38C.

I ate it with muesli every morning, now I will make Mango Lassi as I made a new batch last night.

  4. Wow, Bridget, your candy thermometer looks a WHOLE LOT different from mine. But I'm impressed with the different food things you try. I love yogurt, and I've only had homemade once. There's a definite difference, and perhaps it's the milk.

    Thanks for sharing both the process and the recipe with us for T this week.

  5. Long time since i made my own yoghurt from scratch - I use a packet mix these days :-). I am able to get homogenised only milk here, but 750 mls of that costs as much as 2 litres of 'standard shop' bought... your yoghurt looks fabulous :-)

  7. Many many years ago I made our yogurt at home and we really enjoyed, but somehow I got away from making it.
    I bet your yoghurt tastes really wonderful Bridget...
    it certainly looks inviting!
    Happy T Day

  8. Hello and Happy T Day! I've never tried homemade yogurt but bet it tastes great. Good for you making it, not sure I'd be brave enough since I'm not that great of a cook. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Anything homemade is usually better, and I am sure your homemade yogurt is tasty! I've never tried making it, but I do enjoy greek style yogurt nearly every day for lunch.

  10. My last yogurt making adventure was probably sometime in the late 70s. Your method looks much easier so I may give it a try again.

  12. My MIL used to make yogurt all the time. I have yet to try. I've seen recipes that you can make in a crockpot. I haven't been brave enough to try it yet. :)
    Happy T day!
