Cranberry yogurt

I found myself buying yogurt for my daughter from the supermarket because she liked it better than mine (that is homemade !). I asked myself why? I asked my daughter as well and she replied: Because it is pink! So, not because is sweeter, not because is stored in a human shape bottle inspired from famous cartoons! Only because it was pink! Hmmm... it was the moment when I realized I could have done something about this. My secret ingredient of course was some food coloring. I made it sweet but not with sugar, I poured it in colored pots, add some dried fruits and test it on my daughter :). Well well... surprise... mommy's yogurt is also pink! The next they she asked for more. Huh... tough to compete with supermarkets :):):)

  • 1l raw cow milk (directly from the farm)
  • 125g bio yogurt (might be from a previous home production)
  • 1 heap spoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of dried cranberries per pot
  • a bit of red food coloring

  1. Boil the milk and let it cool until reaches 45ºC.
  2. Add yogurt, honey and food coloring and stir until homogenized.
  3. Put the tablespoon of cranberries in each jar.
  4. Pour the milk mixture in jars over the cranberries.
  5. Cover the jars with plastic foil and secure them with rubber band.
  6. Put the jars in the oven on a baking stone and heat the oven at the lowest temperature (50ºC) for 1h30.
  7. After this, let the oven closed overnight.(I do my yogurts in the evening)
  8. In the morning, place yogurt jars in the fridge for at least 4 hours. It can be kept in the fridge up to 2/3 weeks if not eaten before.
