It’s very easy to make homemade yogurt with a Girmi yogurt maker. All you need to do is fill your yogurt mix into the glass jars and place them into the yogurt maker. The yogurt maker gets plugged into a power outlet and does the rest for you by keeping a steady temperature.
To make a rich, creamy yogurt, you will need (makes 7 yogurts/glass jars):
2 cups whole milk (250 ml)
2 cups heavy cream (250 ml)
5 tablespoons starter (a plain yogurt with live cultures e.g. containing lactobacillus acidophilus)
Measure the milk and cream in a large measuring cup (pitcher), add the starter and stir with a wire whisk until well mixed. Pour it evenly into all seven glass jars and add the lids. Place the jars in your yogurt maker, cover with the lid and plug it into the power outlet. After 10 hours, the yogurt is ready and lukewarm. Place the yogurts in the refrigerator and let them chill for a few hours to reach a firmer consistency. I have a Girmi yogurt maker which works great and effortless, yet you can use any yogurt maker and you will need to follow their directions accordingly.
To enrich your yogurt with an extra special flavor boost, add some homemade strawberry syrup. The recipe for an easy, fabulous strawberry syrup can be found at http://bit.ly/ZQ8fL5 and http://amzn.to/Tgc39Z
