Yogurt is a creamy and tasty food full of essential nutrients which make it one of the healthiest foods that can be made at home. Often people turn to store-bought yogurt rather than making it at home when they face problems like yogurt turning out sour or sour.
But the store-bought yogurt is not a good alternative because it is full of artificial additives and sweeteners that are unhealthy, like gelatin, pectin etc.. And all the good stuff is processed out through procedures like ultra-pasteurization etc.. Why get an unhealthy version of the great food when there’s a healthier and easier way to make yogurt at home!
Here’s a different way to make yogurt that is simple and it makes thick and delicious yogurt in under 10 minutes, so you never have to choose unhealthy store-bought yogurt again.
The important thing is to choose the right pot – a non-toxic, semi-porous pot made from pure clay is the perfect one for this purpose! Pure clay is unglazed natural clay and the pot made from it is naturally semi-porous or breathable. A special feature that makes your yogurt thicker and silkier, obviously! Also, it is 100% non-toxic so it does not leach like metal/ceramic pots.
You can make healthy and delicious yogurt at home in less than 10 minutes hands free time, here are the steps:
Add milk to the pot and let it warm on medium heat with the lid on until small bubbles form on the surface. (for 25-30 minutes to get a 1/2 gallon of milk) Turn off the stove, open lid and let it cool until you can put your little finger and hold it there for 5 secs (for 30 minutes). The milk is ready for adding the civilization.
Add yogurt culture, stir and cover lid.
Let it incubate for 6-8 hours and the yogurt is ready! The yogurt left in the pot gets thicker and thicker in just a couple hours after.
How is it healthier?
Yogurt made this way has no interaction with toxins or chemicals and it doesn’t suffer nutrient loss while heating. As yogurt is obviously thick, and creamy there isn’t any need for straining! And because it’s made in pure-clay (anything cooked in pure clay is very delicious) there is no requirement for adding unhealthy artificial additives or sweeteners such as in store bought yogurt. Only a dab of salt or a sprinkle of brown sugar or some other fruits of your choice or a sprinkle of granola…
So, you can easily make the healthiest and most delicious yogurt using the ideal bud – A pure clay pot.
