We only ever had home made yogurt at home growing up and the texture and flavor is probably far superior to the ones that you get in the grocery store. I always thought it was a mystery how a little bit of yogurt turned a bunch of warm milk into a giant pot of yogurt. I realize now though that it's just a bit of simple science and it's really quite simple. Yogurt is good bacteria and, given the right temperature and conditions, the bacteria grows and ta-da...giant pot of yogurt made for a fraction of the cost of the containers you can buy.
Home Made Yogurt
8 cups milk (whole milk is best)
1/2 cup yogurt containing active cultures (check the ingredients)
Recipe From the kitchn
This is a delicious little canapé recipe made on crostinis isn't a recipe so much as a method of putting a few simple ingredients together into delicious little bite sized morsels. They're super simple to put together and they pack a bunch of flavor into miniature open sandwiches.
Start by spreading some butter over the sliced pieces of crostini and then topping it with basil pesto.
A few more toppings finishes these off.
Crostini, thinly sliced
butter, at room temperature
soft buffalo mozarella, thinly sliced
fresh basil leaves
roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
I love to make food and to eat. I've been baking since before I was a teenager and exploring more with cooking for the past decade. This section of the site is dedicated to my experiments in the kitchen.
