And We Have Yogurt

It's like freaking magic, man! I may have clapped my hands with glee when I woke up this morning to find the milk turned into yogurt. And it is delicious. Oh, yes, it is.

Oh my god. That is the COOLEST THING EVER.

Will there be chocolate cinnamon yogurt soon? My spoon is ready.

I swear, Rose, when my friend Zig started talking about this crazy yogurt making machine that she recently came into possession of, I was fascinated, and needed to make one mine own.

I was fairly hopping out of my skin when my brother swung by to drop it off. Anything that allows me to pretend to be a scientist in my kitchen is brilliant by my books.

I feel like I need a birthday update from you, STAT!

Seriously...just a day for yogurt? Do you have to use any cultures? I would agree with the whole chocolate cinnamon flavor as well. Yum!

Indeed, mister, just a day. I used a couple of tablespoons of storebought organic yogurt that had 4 active bacterial cultures in it as a starter, skim milk, and skim milk powder - if you're using a no-fat milk, the powder helps to create a thicker yogurt. I set the machine to incubate for 15 hours (they recommend between 10 - 20, more for thicker product), and that was it!

I don't know about the flavouring yet - the plain is really fucking lovely as is! But I'm sure I'll want to start experiementing soon enough.

I'm....I mean your brother is so cool, giving you a gift like that...

Nope. You, I mean, my brother, just likes to pretend that he's cool.
