The Donald Trump of Yoghurts
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 7 jars
  • 900ml organic milk
  • 100ml organic yoghurt
  • About 2.5 inches vanilla bean, split
  1. Boil the milk briefly, add the split vanilla bean, remove from heat and leave to cool.
  2. When the milk has cooled to body temperature add in the yoghurt.
  3. Body temperature is when the inside of the wrist can be put on the milk without feeling it.
  4. Stir the yoghurt until well mixed.
  5. Remove the bean and scrape the seeds back into the mix.
  6. Pour into the yoghurt maker jars evenly with a jug.
  7. Turn on the yoghurt maker and leave for 10-12 hours.
  8. Remove jars to fridge.
  9. Enjoy - I really mean that.
I decided not to try options like adding powdered milk if needed so I would get a good idea of what the base yoghurt was like. Maybe later in the starter process it will be, but certainly on batches so far it hasn't.

Be sure not to add the yoghurt to the milk too early or it will kill the live bacteria and the yoghurt won't work
