If yes, you need to know about all the challenges of making it thick and flavorful – similar to the store bought one. If you don’t know the right way of making, it can turn out runny or sour and the surplus water needs straining which also strains the liquid out probiotics.
As soon as you learn how to make it properly, there is not any reason you won’t create it frequently. After all, it is so delicious and healthy – with so many health benefits for people of all age classes. However, it’s only healthy when it is free from harmful additives like gelatin (glue made from animal bones), pectin (a bio-polymer acid, lab-made component ), etc..
To make this delicious food in the healthiest way, all you need is milk, yogurt culture (leftovers from the last batch) and most importantly – a pure clay pot. Pure clay is a non-toxic material so no metal toxins leach into yogurt. The pot made from this substance is naturally semi-porous or breathable. So no surplus water remains in the yogurt as the micro-pores gradually draw out water (& just the water, leaving the liquid probiotics intact) making your yogurt thicker and silkier, naturally!
Here are 3 simple steps to creating yogurt in a pristine clay pot:
Turn stove off, and open lid and let it cool down for 30 mins or so, till you can place your little finger and hold it there for 5 secs. Now the milk is prepared for the culture. (this process takes about 2 minutes hands-on-time)
Add yogurt culture. (two minutes hands-on time)
Set in the oven with the lid and oven light on.
That’s a total of over 10 minutes!
Let it incubate for 6-8 hours and the yogurt is ready. The yogurt left in the pot gets thicker and thicker over time. Besides being thicker and creamier, the yogurt made in pure clay pot is with no doubt healthier because the food doesn’t have any interaction with metals or compounds from the pot. And does not experience nutrient loss while cooking or heating. Additionally, no additives are used like in the store bought yogurt – save you from damaging effects of artificial sugars and additives.
