Homemade organic yogurt recipe is a healthy source of protein, calcium, magnesium, and other essential vitamins, whose active bacterial cultures aid in digestion. You can make yogurt in your own home.
1 half gallon freshest organic whole milk
½ cup plain organic yogurt
Heat 1 half gallon of milk on the stove to boil.
Let the milk cool, just until is warm, not very cold.
Add the plain yogurt to a small cup. Make sure the yogurt has live, active cultures. It can be store-bought plain yogurt or the last spoonfuls of your most recent homemade batch. Add a bit of the warm milk to the yogurt in the cup and swirl it around.
Place the milk into half gallon jar with lid . Then pour the rest of the yogurt into the jar over the milk and stir well, cover.
The jar needs to stay warm for about 2 hours 30 minutes . Wrap a heavy towel and a blanket around the jar and let rest for 2 ½ hours while the cultures do the work.
Unwrap the jar and place it in the fridge overnight.
The yogurt is more thin than store-bought, but it’s ideal for smoothies or just like that in the morning . If you like thicker yogurt, pour it into a colander lined with cheese cloth, coffee filters, or paper towels, and let the excess liquid drip into a bowl below.
Note: you can use a food container with lid if you don’t have a jar in the house.
