When we went on our trip to NZ I was introduced to the idea of making my own yogurt. What a neat idea. And Eloise made it sound so easy with her low tech set up that I couldn’t get it out of my head. I did some research and certainly you can buy electric yogurt makers or you can pull together things you have to make yogurt, but there is something nice about a product that is task specific. I mentioned this to Bill and he told me he bought himself an Easiyo and loved it and offered to get one for me. I am on my second batch of yogurt and I wish I could say that I was having great success… but I am not. My first batch was definitely yogurt, but more runny that I like. I prefer a thick greek style yogurt like Fage. This weekend I went out and bought a gallon of skim milk, powdered milk, UHT milk (aka Parmalat) and a small tub of Fage 0%. After heating and cooling the milk and putting the milk and yogurt in my Easiyo I went to sleep dreaming of thick rich greek yogurt. I was sad to find something along the lines of a yogurt drink waiting for me this morning. I am going to attempt to save the batch by straining the yogurt so this may not be a total bust. I am hoping my next round of experimentation goes better.
