How to make yogurt?

Today I want to show you how to make yogurt. Yogurt was consumed by medieval Turks in 11th century and at first it was fermented with ant eggs.


  •      1 gallon of whole or reduced fat vitamin D milk (it is best if you can find raw milk)
  •           ½ cup of yogurt
  •           A little bit sugar


First take a large pot and put all the milk in it and heat it until it is boiled.  After that wait around 15 minutes (this time depends on the kind of pot and the amount of the milk) until it gets a temperature that will not burn your finger. You can check it with your little finger. The most important thing in making yogurt is to find correct temperature. So even if you cannot make it in the first time, you will be more successful after trying couple of times. When you find the correct temperature, add the yogurt and a little bit of sugar, like a teaspoon, in the milk. Then cover it with several blankets, as it has to stay in the same temperature all the time. Put it in a warm place and do not open it 8 hours. After 8 hours open it and check if is thick enough, if it is not you can wait another two hours.  After opening it, wait until it gets cold and put it in the refrigerator. If you want a thicker yogurt, you can put a clean, no color cloth on top of it to suck the water in it.  Your yogurt will be ready in couple of hours.
