Yogurt is a creamy and delicious food full of essential nutrients that makes it one of the healthiest foods that can be made at home. Often, people turn to store-bought yogurt instead of making it at home when faced with problems like yogurt that get sour or watery.
But the purchased yogurt is not a good alternative because it is full of artificial additives and sweeteners that are unhealthy, like gelatin, pectin etc. And all the good stuff is processed through processes like ultra pasteurization etc. Why get an unhealthy version of this good food when there is a healthier and easier way to make yogurt at home!
Here’s another way to make yogurt that is simple, and it makes thick and delicious yogurt in less than 10 minutes, so you never have to choose unhealthy store-bought yogurt again.
The key is to choose the right pot – a non-toxic, semi-porous pot made of pure clay is the right one for this purpose! Pure clay is unglazed natural clay, and the pot made from it is naturally semi-porous or breathable. This allows just the excess water to evaporate, leaving all liquid probiotics intact. A unique feature that naturally makes your yogurt thicker and silky! It is also 100% non-toxic so it does not leak like metal / ceramic pots.
You can make healthy and delicious yogurt at home in less than 10 minutes hands-on time, here are the steps:
Add milk to the pan and heat on medium heat with a lid until small bubbles form on the surface. (for 25-30 minutes in a ½ gallon of milk) Turn off the oven, open the lid and allow it to cool until you can put your little finger and hold it there for 5 seconds (for 30 minutes). Now the milk is ready to add to the culture.
Add yogurt culture, stir and cover lids. (takes 3 minutes)
Place in the oven with the light on. (takes 2 minutes)
Let it incubate for 6-8 hours and the yogurt is ready! The yoghurt left in the pan gets thicker and thicker in a few hours after.
How is it healthier?
Yogurt made in this way has no interaction with chemicals or toxins, and it does not suffer from nutritional loss during heating. Since yogurt is naturally thick and creamy, no strain is needed. And because it is made in pure clay (everything cooked in pure clay is very delicious) there is no need to add unhealthy artificial additives or sweeteners such as yogurt purchased in the store. Just a dick of salt or a sprinkle of brown sugar or any fruit of your choice or even a sprinkle of granola …
So you can easily make the healthiest and most delicious yogurt using the right pot – A pure clay pot.
