Yogurt is the topic of this month’s Daring Cook’s challenge.
The lovely Cher of The Not So Exciting Adventures of a Dabbler was our July Daring Cooks’ hostess and she asked us to create homemade yogurt in our own kitchens! No incubators needed, no expensive equipment or ingredients, just a few items and we had delicious yogurt for a fraction of the cost and a whole lot healthier than what you buy in the stores!
Well, everything is relative. Fresh cow milk costs the same or more than yogurts. Those they sell are not different than home-made (using the same yogurts as ferment, my only option). Then, I don’t know in other countries but yogurt makers, electric and thermos can be found at bargain price, and my oven can do “incubator”. So the equipment is less an issue than the ingredients.
I had already made a lot of dairy yogurts and a few experiments in dairy free ones (about my dairy free adventures). So I tried a new variations with black soy beans.
I have used black soy beans to make :
And this milk (recipe here) gave this :
Oh surprise ! It’s pink. I simply enjoyed it with berry jam.
