Benefit from the tried and tested methods I’ve used to culture milk, as well as the “what not to do” tips.

Appeal of Healthy Food

Yogurt with Honey

I grew up on healthy, homemade food, so it seems like I've been interested in it forever. When I discovered how to culture milk a few years ago, I was excited. I couldn’t believe how simple it was..... or how good it tasted. I was hooked. Soon I was making yogurt, kefir, buttermilk and sour cream.

As foods become increasingly processed and tinkered with, it’s important to find sources of nourishing, natural foods. What better place than your home?

I want to share with you what I've learned so you can enjoy the advantages of culturing milk yourself.

Nutritious Homemade Yogurt is Valuable to You

Benefits of Fermented Milk
  • It tastes way better. So does homemade sour cream, kefir, and buttermilk.
    • It costs a lot less to make..... especially the Greek style and frozen varieties.It’s healthy…… your choice of quality ingredients (type of milk, starter culture, sweetener) free of fillers and preservatives.
    • Improves digestion..... all your homemade cultured dairy will contain live probiotic bacteria.
    • Freedom from not relying on the store for everything.
    • Eco friendly – fewer containers for the landfill.

.......... Any way you spoon it homemade yogurt is a great option for taste-good, healthy eating. :-)

My family’s health is important and so is yours. From my home to your home. Allow me to be your guide.

"Food of the Gods"

Food of the Gods

Besides being probiotic (for life), yogurt is rich in vitamin B, calcium and protein. Add great taste and it’s not hard to imagine why it was called “food of the gods” by the ancient Greeks.

..... yes, fermented milk and other fermented foods have been around a long time.....

For thousands of years cultures throughout the world relied on lactic acid fermentation as a way to preserve food. They benefited from the nutritional, digestive and therapeutic value these foods added to their diet.

Yogurt Reinvented

Our ancestors made and ate the lacto-fermented (probiotic) foods that are being rediscovered and reinvented in North America today..... like fermented dairy.

We’ve all heard the buzz about probiotic dairy and how good it is for you. Even though it’s anything but new, yogurt is the “newly advertised” probiotic food......

Ancient cultures recognized what science is discovering today..... fermented foods containing live cultures are good for you. The best probiotics can be part of your regular diet, naturally.  

How to Make Yogurt Simply to Save Money

If you thought the store was the only place to get yoghurt, think closer to home. Everything you need for making it is likely already there.

...And it doesn't take long to make when you follow my step-by-step instructions with photos. All you need is some very basic equipment and ingredients and you're ready.

Try making it in the evening. Let it ferment overnight so you can enjoy it fresh with fruit for breakfast. Think of it as pampering yourself in the best way possible.

From to Flavored to Fruity - Suit Your Fancy

Get creative. Don't be afraid to radically customize (or not) your curd by adding different flavorings and sweeteners to suit your taste.  Homemade yogurt recipes explains different ways to add flavorings before incubating.

You can even experiment adding different strains of probiotic (lactic acid) bacteria to achieve different tastes and to target specific health concerns.

Once you've made plain yogurt you're only a step away from making Greek yogurt, yogurt cheese, frozen yogurt or a yogurt smoothie.

Too busy? Worried You Don't Have Enough Time?

Don’t be. It doesn’t take long and it’s really simple. I usually pick a time when I’m going to be in the kitchen working anyway. That way I’m handy to check the temperature of the milk while it’s heating and cooling. In no time you’ll be a pro!

Are You Lactose Intolerant? 

Scientific studies prove yogurt along with kefir and other fermented milk products are easier to digest than fresh milk.

This is good news if you are lactose intolerant… or if your body just doesn’t handle dairy products well, like my daughter. You may be able to enjoy small portions of kefir or fermented dairy without reacting to the lactose.
