Welcome to the EuroCuisine kitchen where delicious food is created with ease. Today I’m going to show you how to make fresh and healthy yogurt using the EuroCuisine YM 100 Yogurt Maker with Automatic Electric Timer. Are you ready for a fresh start? Let’s make some yogurt. All you need are two simple ingredients. First ingredient - 2 to 3 ounces of plain yogurt at room temperature or a five gram packet of EuroCuisine Yogurt Culture plus 5 ¼ cups of your favorite milk, that’s about 42 ounces. You can use any type of milk - whole, skim or low-fat, pasteurized or raw. You can also use almond milk, soy milk or even goat’s milk.
Prepare an ice bath in your kitchen sink, no more than a few inches of cold water and ice cubes. Remove the white caps from the seven glass jars in your EuroCuisine Yogurt Maker. We won’t need them until the yogurt is cooked. Pour your milk into a sauce pan. Heat the milk. Whisk frequently to avoid charring. When the milk starts to bubble or reaches 180°F its ready. Place the saucepan into the ice bath and cool it to 100°F. That’s about the same temperature one would feel comfortable feeding this milk to a baby. Remove one cup of the milk from the saucepan and pour the rest in a pitcher. Stir in the yogurt or yogurt culture with the one cup of the warm milk. Today I’m using all-natural plain yogurt as my starter.
Now it might seem strange that you need to buy yogurt to make yogurt. But what we’re doing is we’re introducing good probiotic bacteria to the milk. These bacteria thrive in heat and that’s exactly what your yogurt maker is going to provide. So all you’re going to do is take your mixture, pour it in with the warm milk already in your pitcher and then just give it a stir. Pour the final mixture into the seven glass jars in equal amounts. Place the open jars into the EuroCuisine YM 100 Yogurt Maker. Remember we’re saving the individual white jar lids for later. Place the clear cover over the maker. Set the electric timer to the desired cooking time. Press the red button until the light turns on. I’m going to cook this batch for eight hours. I like to cook mine overnight but sometimes it cooks while I’m at work. The unit will shut off when the time is up and it will beep a few times to alert you. It’s that simple. Eight hours later remove the clear lid and place individual white lids onto to each jar. Refrigerate the glass jars. The yogurt will stay fresh for at least 10 days.
The YM 100 has enough glass jars to provide one serving every day for a week. My family loves yogurt so we create a new batch every other night. Now when the jars have chilled for at least three hours your yogurt is ready to eat. You can enjoy plain yogurt straight out of the jar or you can add it to your favorite cereal. I like to stir in seasonal fruits and spices. I think it’s a great way to add new flavors throughout the year. My kids love to experiment. Creating yogurts really is a great family activity.
