What else you need

Simple Step-by-step guide

The basic idea is to heat the milk (and cream) to kill any bacteria which might be in there when you start, then cool the milk, add your yoghurt bacteria (in the starter yoghurt) and leave it somewhere warm for 24 hrs. to turn into yoghurt.

  1. Put milk & cream into pan
  2. Slowly bring to the boil, stirring all the time
  3. Boil very gently for about half a minute or so, being carefull not to let it boil over
  4. Turn off heat and put pan aside to cool to room temperature
