This recipe was a result of a mission. I was on a mission to create, in bulk, homemade organic yogurt for my family. We eat ALOT of it!
I like it plain. The boys like it with a little bit of pure maple syrup or honey stirred in. We use it to make smoothies practically daily. If you like fruit in your yogurt just puree your favorite flavor and stir it in. We happen to have an abundance of blueberries so I'll often pull some from our freezer to use. One of our 7 year olds favorite breakfasts is to slice up a banana, put some of this yogurt on top and sprinkle with granola. Our family gives this yogurt a definate 5 spoons!
A couple of helpful tips:
Tip #1: Start this recipe early! This recipe takes 13 1/2 hrs. so timing is everything. I started ours around 6:00 a.m. and finished around 7:30 p.m. You could also start it around 5:00 or 6:00 p.m. and it will be finished when you wake in the morning.
Tip #2: You can use your own organic yogurt (6 oz.) as the starter in the next batch instead of buying a cup at the store. This saves you a bit of money also.
Tip #3: Bake with it! If you have a recipe that calls for sour cream you can replace it with your homemade yogurt.
