It'll be Fun!

Hi, it's Celia again.

Mom asked me if I wanted to learn to make yogurt. Mom inherited a yogurt maker three years ago after Grandma died, and Mom just figured out  a couple of months ago how to use it.

"No," I answered.

"Come on. It will be educationa......It will be fun!" She said.

So I learned how to make yogurt. Here's what you need. Plus a whisk.

And here's the yogurt maker. Mom wanted to clean it before I took a picture of it. That's why it's not in the first picture.

First you pour 4 cups of milk into a pot. Well, mom said it's actually a sauce pan. Pans have one handle, pots have two. Did I mention she's a caterer? And you can use any kind of milk. Raw, goat, cow. Whatever.

You heat it until bubbles form around the outside.

Then you cool it until it's between 110 and 115 degrees, and whisk in the 1/2 cup of yogurt from the last batch you made. Or mom said you can buy yogurt starter. Or you can get plain yogurt from the store. So many options!

Then you fill up the little cups, put the lids on, put the cups in the yogurt maker, and plug it in, Eight hours later you have yogurt.

It is a little sour, so I add jelly to it. Strawberry is my favorite.


  1. Great post Celia, and I learned something too. I always thought that pans were what you put in the oven and pots were what you put on top of the oven. Now I'll know better.

  2. Thank you! And yes, my mom is always filling my head with that kind of information. I hope I use it some day! Celia at ARunawayGoat
