Vanilla yogurt

Home made yogurt with vanilla flavor.

  • 1l raw cow milk (direclty from the farm)
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons of powder milk (optional, only to give more consistency)
  • 100g bio yogurt (might be from a previous home production)

  1. Open the vanilla bean, remove the seeds and add both the been and seeds into milk.
  2. Boil the milk and let it cool until 45ºC.
  3. Remove the bean from milk, wash it and dry it. It can be used to flavor sugar.
  4. Add honey and powder milk and stir until dissolved.
  5. Add yogurt and stir until homogenized.
  6. Pour the milk in jars.
  7. Cover the jars with plastic foil and secure them with rubber band. If you have jars with lids, you can skip this step.
  8. Put the jars into a cast iron pot.
  9. Pour warm water between jars in the pot, reaching maximum the level of the yogurt in jars.
  10. Cover the cast iron pot with its lid and put it in the oven at the lowest temperature (50ºC) for 2 hours.
  11. After this, let the oven closed and do not take the pot or the jars out for another 4-5 hours. Better to let them over night. If you use a yogurt machine you need to keep them at warm for 10-12 hours. Without a machine, the cast iron pot does a perfect work as well.
  12. When totally cooled. take out the jars from the iron pot and put them in the fridge. It can be kept in the fridge up to 3 weeks ... if there is something remaining...
