Well, my yogurt went into containers this morning. It looks like yogurt (but a bit runny) and smells like yogurt. I really dont like plain yogurt so I am reluctant to try it. LOL
Who shall be my guinea pig?
So, at what point would it be okay to drain it on some cheesecloth to try and thicken it up?
And what would you use the liquid for? Making bread perhaps?
Yes, things are very tight to say the least, but God is faithful. We have just what we need, when we need it.
DHs parents are in MI, so its even worse for them.
They sell for Ecoquest, but sales are more then down, because most people cannot afforsd the air purifiers right now.
It will be just a matter of weeks before all our chickens are laying, and we will have at least 2 dozen eggs for sale every day.
I only need to sell 12 dozen to pay for the barley mix we feed them, and then the rest is profit!
Next year, we will have a few goats, and be able to run a small share program as well.
Homemade yogurt is textured different then commercial yogurt.
It will be tangy, but you will like it.
Try mixing in a bit of honey to start out.
Beofre I stopped using sugary stuff, I would put jelly in it.
Now I put things like my lacto fermented wild blueberry sauce in it
You can certainly use the liquid for making bread.
You can strain the yogurt at any time.
If this was yogurt made with raw milk, you can use the whey as a tonic, or for fermenting veges and fruit.
