So, I've been pretty active the last few weeks. I've been working on several work projects and we've been pretty busy with life in general. I've been doing a fair amount of knitting but I have also been finding time to do a little something in the kitchen.
A friend gifted a yogurt maker to me a few weeks back. I was ecstatic and I'm pretty sure she thought I was nuts for my overwhelming enthusiasm at making my own yogurt - I get really excited sometimes. LOL!
Here's the maker I got, it's from 1976 so it's as old as me! It matches our kitchen counters very well, don't you think?
It came with EVERYTHING: manual, all the jars, lids and even the thermometer spoon.
I followed directions, twice, and only was able to make rotten milk. It was very sad. After the second trial, I admitted that this old gal may be past her prime so after some research, I ordered a new one. This one is the Eurocuisine YM80 and it really is fabulous!
It has 7 individual serving jars and they are just the perfect size. I am using organic skim milk, organic powdered nonfat milk and a little Greek yogurt for the starter.
We've been using it for smoothies with a banana and an orange. Delicious!
