it's yoghurt, it's in a jar

When I was in Germany recently, I took myself off to the supermarket for a bit of 'Euro supermarket  food porn' - one of my favourite things to do overseas is check out the local stupidmarket. Let me tell you, the aisles of Germany did not disappoint. There were cheeses, oh so many cheeses, nice tea, fresh berries, weird meats, breads and yoghurt in jars - in jars. I don't know why we don't have yoghurt in jars here, it looks way better and is probably better for you. So I just made some in my own jar (clevers I know). I used a Aldi brand mayo jar for a touch of the Deutschland, and it looks great. 

If you've not yet ventured into the cultured world of DIY yoghurt you're missing out. It's not as hard as you think and you don't need to bother with heating the milk up etc. just use UHT milk as it's already been heated to the right temperature.

It's as easy as...

a. take a tablespoon of yoghurt from an old batch or a tub of store bought yoghurt
b. add to the jar with two tablespoons of powdered milk (makes it lovely & creamy) & add UHT milk
c. stir & then sit in an esky or yoghurt maker (filled with 1/3 boiling water) for six to eight hours ... 

and you're done, easy as that... p.s for some crafty goodness, get over here to win my Bambi gift pack.

Found it! Thanks for the link (from IG). Do you have to heat the milk at all? All other recipes I find tell me to heat the milk!
