Leave the jar to air dry, or use a CLEAN tea towel to dry thoroughly (any water droplets will spoil your yoghurt).

Your yoghurt will last longer if you use a clean spoon each and every time.

A good quality, pot set yoghurt with live bacteria is a must, or your own yoghurt will not grow. Check the label for a statement like “contains live and active cultures” or “minimum 100 mill cultures per gram (>1 billion probiotic count per 110g)”

The longer the incubation, the sharper and more tangy the flavour. Your yoghurt will further thicken in the fridge, until opened.

It is normal for homemade yoghurt to regularly release more whey with age; either pour this off, or reserve for use in scones, pancakes and smoothies.

I use a pot set Greek-style yoghurt as my starter as I prefer the more tangy/tart flavours. It’s also more versatile and can been used in both sweet and savoury dishes. If you prefer a more mild or sweet flavour, you can use a natural or vanilla sweetened yoghurt, just check the culture count for suitability.

Serving suggestion: top with fresh berries and a dash of natural maple syrup/raw honey for a healthy lunch box snack.
