Easy Homemade Yogurt without the Gadgets, in 10-minutes hands on time - Archived
Making yogurt at home seems like a daunting process to some and makes them turn to either store bought yogurt or buying a yogurt-maker. While store bought yogurt has artificial additives and negligible nutritional value, the electrical yogurt makers have their own disadvantages:
Electrical yogurt makers use the principal of incubation to allow the culture to settle in the milk and convert it into yogurt. But they come expensive and may cost as high as $2000 – not a wise option especially when there is a much easier and healthier way of making yogurt with less money spent!
Worse than that, the metal pot used in the yogurt maker carries the risk of leaching toxins into hot milk. And lastly, there may still be issues like yogurt not setting properly or turning out watery and sour, which might call for artificial sweeteners and flavors – not healthy at all!
- Heat ½ gallon of milk to just before boiling point (till small bubbles form on the surface). Turn stove off, and open lid and let it cool down for 30 mins or so, till you can put your little finger and hold it there for 5 secs. Now the milk is ready for the culture.
- Add yogurt culture, stir thoroughly.
- Set in the oven with the lid on and oven light on.
- Let it incubate for 6-8 hours and the yogurt is ready!
The yogurt keeps getting thicker and creamier the longer it stays in the pot– without using unhealthy additives. This is possible because of the semi-porous walls of MEC pots that let excess water evaporate. And as pure clay pots are 100% non-toxic, there is no risk of contamination.
Lastly, unlike the complex yogurt making gadgets, the cleaning and maintenance of your MEC yogurt pot is easy – just clean with water (no toxic soaps or detergents needed) and put away to dry.
