Homemade Yogurt

Prep Notes

Using bought yogurt as a starter. But, of course, you can use yogurt starter in a powder, if you wish.


  • 500 ml milk
  • 1 tbsp store bought yogurt (with live bacteria, if it doesn't work, the yogurt wasn't "alive"). Or powder starter as directed on package.


  1. Bring milk to boil, switch it off before it runs away (this is the expression in my language, not sure about English, you know it boils out of the pot and makes a lot of mess:) This step keeps homogenity, but it can be skipped, if you're busy, and don't care so much.
  2. Let it cool (until it's pleasant to your little finger, when dipped in).
  3. Set to a dark, quiet place for couple of days (maybe 2 in summer, 3 or rather more in winter, varies greatly depending on your room temperature). It's done when firm as yogurt.
  4. Transfer to fridge, enjoy for many days to come. Or transform it further into Cream Cheese.
