Instructions
  1. First, place the milk in a metal pot and heat it on low temperature.
  2. Bring it to boil and immediately remove it from the heat. We perform this step in order to kill all the malevolent germs that might be in the raw milk. They will spoil the yogurt and can potentially harm our bodies.
  3. Next, leave the milk aside to cool off to 40°-45° C (104°-113° F).
  4. Sterilize the thermometer and dip it in the milk to check the temperature. You can use regular alcohol or silver water to clean the appliance.
  5. Now we can prepare the Bulgarian yogurt starter bacterial culture. In a bowl take some of the warm milk and mix it with the yogurt starter. Stir well to blend them completely.
  6. Next, bring the mixture back to the pot with the milk and stir well. Take a fork or a whisk and slowly blend the ingredients by hand for several minutes. We need to distribute the bacteria evenly.
  7. Consecutively, sterilize the glass jars, or the yogurt maker containers and pour the milk in. Do not seal them too tightly! You can switch the yogurt maker according to its programming. If you do not have such appliance, wrap the jars with a blanket and leave them at room temperature for several hours to set. The time will depend on the temperature of the room. If it is nicely warm, the yogurt can be ready for as little as 5-6 hours. Otherwise, it may take more than 12 hours to set completely.
  8. You can check by opening the jars and inspecting the consistency of the product. If it is nice and firm, the yogurt is ready! If it is still too runny, cover it again with the blanket and leave it to set for a couple more hours.
  9. When the yogurt is ready, remove the blanket and leave it to drop its temperature for 1-2 more hours.
  10. Finally, seal the jars tightly and transfer them to the fridge. Real probiotic homemade Bulgarian yogurt is best for a couple of days after production! So, dig in!
