Fermentation & Draining Time
family-friendly, home cooking, simple
full-fat natural yoghurt
whole UHT milk
Day One (Morning)
Empty your starter yoghurt into a large bowl or jug.
Add the milk to the yoghurt, starting with just a little, and stir really well.
Ladle out one pot of the plain yoghurt mixture, which will be a starter for a future batch of yoghurts.
To the remaining yoghurt mixture, add the fruit syrup and sugar.
Stir the mixture really well until all the sugar has dissolved.
Ladle or pour the flavoured yoghurt mixture into a 1-litre tub suitable for your yoghurt maker.
Place the yoghurt in your yoghurt maker, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
Set the fermentation time for 10 hours.
Day One (Evening)
At the end of the fermentation time, cool the yoghurts on the kitchen side for half an hour.
Cover and refrigerate the natural starter yoghurt.
Strain the fruit-flavoured yoghurt by setting your tub in the straining position or by gently spooning the yoghurt into a cheesecloth-lined sieve over a bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Day Two (Morning)
Transfer the thickened fruit yoghurt into a small bowl.
Stir the yoghurt gently, and then distrubute it between 4 or 5 small glasses or serving dishes.
Cover and refrigerate until serving.
Do not use fresh milk for this recipe.
