>Homemade yogurt in a family size pot!


Love the flower shaped pot!

Deceptively simple and totally delicious…
Ingredients list:
1 litre of organic whole milk
1 pot of live yogurt (and subsequently some off your latest batch…)
Half the yogurt pot of sugar
One full pot of powdered milk
2 tsp of orange blossom water

Warm the milk to 50°C – check with a jam thermometer if possible or just the back of your hand: warm but not burning! Leave it for 5 min. then take it off the hob to add the other ingredients. I use the yogurt pot to measure everything else for ease. Add the powdered milk, the sugar and flavouring and put it back on the hob for 4 to 5 minutes until all is dissolved. Do not let it go too hot. Add the live yogurt and whisk briskly.

Pour into individual glass pots or jam jars or a large glass container as here. This recipe will make enough yogurt for a family for a few days- if you eat yogurt every day.

Put the pots in a slightly warm oven (50°) and leave them for 8 hours. I myself put it as I went to bed and woke up the next day after my 9 hours sleep with perfectly creamy yogurt to enjoy for breakfast – Bliss! The result was a set yogurt with an incredibly creamy consistency and the cleanest taste ever.

Tonight I shall do the same but this time I ‘ll leave the sugar out and use the zest of a bergamot I have purchased from Natoora… Pure luxury shopping! Can’t wait to taste my Earl Grey flavoured yogurt tomorrow…

This recipe was inspired by a lengthy search on the Internet and specifically by conversations going on the lovely illustrated site tambouille.fr.

  1. >Hi Diane…how was the yoghurt with bergamot in the end? Did you use only the zest?

  2. >I still love the smell of the heavenly bergamot- but the usual version of yogurt with a dash of orange blossom flower does work best and I am back to that – making my fresh yogurt every week! DianePS: I did bergamot sugar with the zest and that was top!
