What to do with failed yogurt?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I tried making yogurt with the NT recipe by leaving it overnight with the oven on warm, because my house is so cold this time of year. I think my warm setting is too warm, the yogurt didn't thicken really.

So, what can I do with it, besides compost? Can I use it in any cooking?

Can definitely use it in cooking.

Soak oats in it for porridge or use it as the liquid for bread (lovely soft bread from yogurt).
Or try leaving it overnight in the fridge - mine often isn't thick until I've done that.

You can use it in place of buttermilk in baking, or in smoothies, or drink it plain.

I recently had a half gallon stay thin, and decided to start over with it.
I heated it very gently, planning to add a little more yogurt and put it somewhere warm again, but noticed very quickly that it separated into curds & whey!
By the time it was up to about 100 degrees, I realized I could scoop out whey with a ladle. So I just poured the whole thing into a draincloth in a colander, and it became almost instant yogurt cheese.
With yogurt cheese I like to salt it and mix in some granulated garlic and whatever herbs are lying around.
This time I lightly salted it and left it plain so I could play with it. I've been crumbling it into omelets, and might soon use it in place of goat cheese on some pizza.
