I learned how to make fresh home made yogurt. What a difference from store bought. It’s not at all hard to make. It, like most things, takes a bit of time. So if you are up for the challenge, go for it and make your yogurt. There are already several recipes and tutorials on the web.
So, what does one do with home made yogurt? Here are a few suggestions:
Make Greek Cucumber Dressing to put on warm home made tortillas.
Greek Cucumber Dressing Recipe:
1 cup yogurt (if runny, drain off excess liquid)
1 cucumber (peeled and seeded)
1 tbsp fresh chopped dill (or 1 tsp dried)
1 to 2 cloves of garlic (or powder to taste)
salt and pepper to taste
Shred cucumber, squeeze or press to get extra liquid out of the mass. Add yogurt, dill, garlic, and salt/pepper. Mix well. Cover, chill at least one hour or until you are ready to serve.
Another yummy treat for your home made yogurt: A breakfast parfait:
Use home made or store bought granola, yogurt, and top with your favorite jam. Very healthy when it’s all made at home and you know there are no preservatives in it. 🙂
Then of course, there is the obvious, just eat the yogurt plain. But when you have so many other choices, plain is just well…..plain.
However you eat your newly made yogurt, enjoy it and know it is healthy, cheaper, and better tasting then store bought.
