I had heard of how you could make it in a flask but I just ended up with curds and whey and an evil smelling flask.
Then the husband AKA village boy remembered how they used to make it back in the village of his birth. His recipie involved a big pan of hot milk and lots of blankets. He ended up with curds and whey and evil smelling blankets.
So I bought me an Easy Yo Yogurt maker – - really easy -just mix the contents of the sachet with water – yes thats right – the plastic foil sachet that came in the plastic packed box. Didnt think it through. Not best pleased – it did make very good yogurt though. If only they sold the mix in a jar – or cardboard box. Ho hum back to the drawing board.
Finally got me an electric yogurt maker from Lakeland – mail order.
The yogurt is made in a plastic container -BPA free for those of you worried about leacning chemicals.
It works really well. So although it is a plastic product I feel it is worth it as it cuts our overallplastic consumption.
Please note, not all are yogurt making noddies – if you care to peruse the comments you will find out how to make yogurt using hot water and how to use the Easy Yo yogurt maker without purchasing more sachets.
