Homemade yogurt

I'm very fond of home-made food that can be easily done from raw ingredients. I buy regularly raw milk for my little one from a neighbor farm, so I had to try it for a delicious yogurt as well.

  • 2kg cow raw milk
  • 250g yogurt with active ferments
  • 4 tablespoons of powder milk (optional)

  1. Heat milk to 45ºC and let it cool to 43ºC.
  2. Add yogurt and powder milk and mix well. The powder milk is used only to make the yogurt thicker, so it is optional.
  3. Pour the milk into jars, close them well with a lid or with plastic foil and secured with a rubber band.
  4. Put the jars in a big pot (I prefer a Dutch oven) and cover with its lid.
  5. Fill the pot with worm water (~40ºC) almost until the height of the jars.
  6. Put the lid of the pot and put it in the preheated oven at 40-45ºC for an hour.
  7. Turn the heat off and let it cool by itself inside the oven, without opening it. It may take 4-5 hours.
  8. Take out the pot and now that the jars are cooled they can go to the refrigerator.
The yogurt can be kept up to 15 days in the refrigerator ... if it remains something. A... but do not forget to keep some yogurt for the next turn.
