In Middle Eastern countries like Turkey, Syria, and Lebanon, plain yogurt is a delicious part of many dishes, including both meats and vegetables. It is a thicker type of yogurt than what we usually see in the United States, and because it is so thick, it can be mixed with many different things to make sauces, dips, and dishes, both hot and cold. One of the great benefits of eating yogurt is digestive health, as yogurt contains good bacteria to help process the foods we eat so we can get the most nutritional benefit from all of our healthy eating choices.

Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Plain Yogurt

128 oz Whole Milk
0.5 oz Yogurt, Plain, Whole Milk, 8 Grams Protein Per 8 Ounce

Recipe Directions for Homemade Plain Yogurt

  1. Boil 1 gallon of milk in a large pot until there is a film on the top in a large pot.

  2. Take the pot off the heat and cool until the milk is warm (not too hot and not too cold).

  3. Put 1 tablespoon plain yogurt in the warm milk and stir until completely mixed in.

  4. Place a lid on the pot, wrap the whole pot in a towel or blanket, put a plastic bag (or trash bag) around the wrapped pot, and wrap another towel or blanket around plastic bag containing the wrapped pot. Let this sit out for 2 hours.

  5. After two hours, remove the outer towel, plastic bag, inner towel, and lid from the pot. Place the pot in the refrigerator until the yogurt is cold and thick; then it is ready to eat! If the yogurt is not thick enough after it becomes cold, repeat the process of covering the pot with a lid, towel, plastic bag, and another towel, and then let sit outside of the refrigerator for 30 minute to 1 hour. Then remove all of the coverings again, and place in the refrigerator again until it is cold and thick.
