Adding yogurt starter without clumps

Here is a quick, easy way to add freeze-dried yogurt starter to your milk without clumping.

I was making a batch of yogurt this morning and was thinking about my post on making yogurt that I need to go back and polish. As I was adding starter, I realized maybe I should add this little detail as a separate post, instead of including it only in the main post, for people who already know how to make yogurt.

Tzatziki!! Something To Do With Your Yogurt

Last update: May, 2009. Slight modification for a dip.

I have been making my own yogurt for awhile and now that I can make a good batch consistently, I need recipes on what to do with it. I am not great in the kitchen so I had to find something I could figure out. I love Tzatziki sauce in Greek food so I thought I would give this a try.

Yogurt Maker Review

I recently started to make yogurt using a “yogurt maker”. There are several kinds out there so I thought I would let you know how the one I own works.

  • Brand: Yogourmet
  • Model: Multi
  • Price when I bought it: Under $50 U.S.
  • Duration of time owned at time of posting: 3 weeks (now much longer and I still like it) (Still like it a year later)

September 14, 2008. Notes added in the preparation and a link to Tzaziki sauce.

Yogurt is a healthy way to replace many fattening spreads, keep the good bacteria in your digestive tract, or just to have a healthy snack. This post will explain a method on how to make yogurt, yogurt cheese, and Greek-style yogurt. I have limited experience doing this and there may be better ways but here is how it has worked so far for me.

Yogurt!

So at this moment I am making yogurt and yogurt cheese. This is something I have done off and on before but I am going at it again. The pre-made yogurts have been getting smaller and smaller in their available sizes and yet the prices rise. Do they think we would not notice? So I thought I would give it another shot. Granted, my yogurt is not the same as the yogurt I am used to. One gets the taste for additives, gelatin, fake fruit, and so on.
