Daisy Helps with the Yogurt


In the winter I can culture my yogurt by the woodstove. If the cats don't knock it over.

Lovely. I cultured my vegetables in our warm bathroom earlier this week!

Entirely unrelated to yogurt, but I'm loving Daisy's hair in those braids!

I just did yogurt also. I have a tendency to get busy and forget about my yogurt,leaving it too long. Then I come back to a clumpy mess, but it still works great for buttermilk. Daisy looks like an Alpine milk maid.

I've never been as successful with yoghurt as I'd like. However, I could've cultured it outside in my backyard last week, with the heatwave that we had. It was the perfect temperature!

This is something I am determined to learn to make this year. Would you share your method?
I also love Daisy in her braids. You remain an inspiration.

Pamela said...

You inspire me! How do you do it all?

Would you please post your culture method? I've tried several and have had not-so-much success. The photo of Daisy reminds me of Heidi and Grandfather and goat milk. :) Beautiful.

Jane said...

I am so glad you posted this with the link to your method. Please let me know where you buy the starter. Thank you!

Anna said...

Jane, at the time I was buying my starter at the health food store. Since then though I've been saving 1/4 c. of yogurt from the previous batch and using it quite successfully to start the next. A good quality unsweetened store yogurt also works well. So much cheaper and more satisfying than purchased starter!

Linda said...

First of all, Daisy looks so adorable with her cute hairdo and sweet little dress.
Can I ask what starter you use. I know this sounds completely ignorant, but there you have it. I've been buying Greek yogurt - and it's rather pricey. I'd much rather make my own!

Margo said...

Wow! Daisy looks cute and so much more grown up than I remember!

For those of you asking about starter, I use 1/3 c. yogurt from a previous batch, or if I forget, I keep some freeze-dried yogurt starter on hand. I buy mine at the health food store.

Just wanted to say that I'm an accomplished cook and kitchen chemist, but I do find yogurt a little undependable. Not always sure why a batch works and why it fails. sighhhhh I've been buying it outright recently.

You've reminded me that I need to learn to make yogurt! I'm tired of how sweet the store-bought stuff is.

Oh I would love to start making our own yogurt...is it hard?

Hannah said...

I've always wanted to make yogurt, I just don't know if I could do it! The thought of the cultures, it just makes me sick. Even if I do eat already made yogurt! haha.

Trudy said...

What a beauty.

I've been reading about fermenting at home in Nouring Traditions and am still working up the courage. Have you ever had a bad batch? Is it easy to maek a good bath, rather?

That's such a sweet picture! I love the polka-dot pinafore.

I've given you a blog award - visit this post of mine to see it: http://elisabethscorner.blogspot.com/2009/02/blog-awards.html

I was just having a conversation with our babysitter about making your own yogurt. I'd LOVE to try. Daisy looks adorable as always!
