However, many people face the problem of making the perfect yogurt at home. It is not a complex process, if you know the right way to do it. To make delicious yogurt at home, you will first and foremost need good containers or glass products where the yogurt can be set. These glass products look attractive and will offer you a good view of how the yogurt looks. So, for all those who wish to prepare yogurt at home, here are some easy tips.
Tip 1: Pre-Coating the Surface:
To set yogurt at home, preferably you need a metallic surface. In case you do not have any metallic bowl or container for setting the yogurt, you can also use glass products. First and foremost, you need to rinse it well using water. This will help in pre-coating the surface of the food container or jar, which will keep the surface protected from coming into direct contact with the various milk-proteins, as the milk is slowly poured in. When warm milk is poured in the container for setting, a lesser quantity of protein will stick to the bottom of the pan. Thus, you will have a neat surface; your yogurt will not just look good, it will taste delicious as well.
Tip 2: Microwaving Is A Good Option:
Many people have yogurt on a daily basis. They prefer fresh homemade yogurt because it’s healthy and easy to prepare. One of the easiest ways to ensure that you have a smooth and delicious yogurt is by boiling the milk in a microwave. Measure the milk and pop it in the microwave. Once it comes to boil, you can allow it to cool. Once it cools down a bit, you can add some yogurt from your previous batch and stir it well. You can wrap the container using warm water and simply go to bed. The next morning as you wake up, you can refrigerate your yogurt container. Your delicious, creamy and rich yogurt will be ready to serve in a just short time.
Tip 3: Use Mason Jars:
If you are unhappy with the Mason jar or container you are using for yogurt, you can use wide-mouthed mason jars for the purpose. You can heat whole milk and when it cools down a bit, you can mix some yogurt from the batch you already have. You can then pour this in the mason jars, which have reusable lids or caps. You can again place the jar beside the oven and let it set. Let the yogurt set throughout the day. You can later transfer it into your refrigerator. You will enjoy your fresh and cool delicious yogurt, the next day.
