I will but can I wait a couple of weeks, until things settle down here.


Thanks, no rush, it has waited almost 6 months now, a few more weeks will do no harm.

at Blacksmith...hope Mrs Blacksmith doesn' t pop in here too often!

I think Fiddlesticks Julie recently offered, off her own bat, to do a yoghurt making article...I didn't know we were waiting for one though?

One thing worth bearing in mind though is methods...like I think Tahir's mum uses/used the airing cupboard and Jema uses a flask? And I use a Lakeland yoghurt maker...and then there're all the things to do with it afterwards. Iced yoghurt...baking...curries as you say...strained for Greek style/cheese...


So I think the best summary is asking Alison and F Julie to have a chat and see what they can come up with between them (if previous offerings from both are to judge by, both will be worth the waiting )

I have the lakeland YM so I can do that bit if you want.

I am also going to try buttermilk yog too, seeing that the butter making is going great guns here.

Never heard of it, so that sounds very interesting

I find the big flask the lazy way of doing things and my aircupboard is not good for balancing things in.

I did offer, I've taken one photo ready, just had to get the kids back at school and the house straightened out ( should be vacuuming now actually ) No I didn't know we were 'waiting' for one as it were.

Sounds like Alison certainly has more experience than I, what do you want to do Alison? I don't mind either way.

I know my own technique has got simpler and simpler, i used to add dried milk, use a thermometre to check temperature, and strain the yoghurt in a mylon straining bag.

Now it's boil, cool till it's about right, flask, wait several hours and pour into container.

One of the benefits about adding a couple of teaspoons of dried milk is you do get a thicker yoghurt, which becomes even nicer if you then strain it.

If you're looking for a 'yoghurt in a flask' how to with pictures for absolute beginners, I can have it for you by tomorrow night?

That would be fabulous if you can, Pink Bouncy, especially as it is probably something most people could do with what they have in the house already!

There is no absolute hurry on it though, as it will probably go up next week some time, so don't feel pressured! Email editor at downsizer.net with the text and pics and we'll do the rest

Thanks again - but everyone else, don't let this put you off, other methods would also be welcome, as well as anything about straining/using the resulting yoghurt.

Well done, Pink Bouncy. I'd forgotten about it! I think me and Alison were trying to be too polite to each other ie 'no you're more experienced, after you.. etc, etc!!

Straight to the point and delivered! Well done!
