Home Made Yoghurt in the AGA- thank you to Helen B for this recipe.
This is a recipe designed for an AGA, but it should in principle work just as well in a slow cooker or the airing cupboard!
1 tablespoon natural yoghurt
1 tablespoon dried milk
1 pint (600ml) sterilised milk*
Cream together the natural yoghurt and dried milk with a little of the cold milk. Heat the remaining milk in a saucepan to blood temperature. Pour the warmed milk onto the yoghurt mix and stir to combine.
Cover the bowl with a plate, then a tea cosy or towel.
If you have an AGA stand in a colander on top of the simmering plate and leave overnight to set. Next day transfer to the refrigerator to cool.
If using a slow cooker the low setting should work. Airing cupboards may require some experimentation.
Use to make a yoghurt sundae. Spoon fruit puree, coulis or honey into the base of a sundae glass, cover with a layer of home- made yoghurt, and top generously with granola** or muesli.
*Your milkman will deliver sterilised milk on request or it can be readily found in the milk section of your local supermarket.
**Jordan’s granola is especially good for this.
