*After you have made your first batch of yogurt, be sure to scoop 2 tablespoons of the yogurt into a small container and freeze to use for making the next batch. This will be your new yogurt starter, you won’t have to buy another container of yogurt again. Just defrost in the refrigerator overnight and add to the milk and condensed milk.
**The yogurt needs several hours in the fridge to set up and thicken so don’t be tempted to stir!
***Strain or not to strain – I’ve made it both ways and I prefer not straining. Not straining you get a creamy smooth texture and straining it, it is thicker but not as smooth. Recently I read you can use a hand mixer (a whisk just doesn’t do the trick) to get the strained yogurt more smooth. I’ll have to give it a try and let you know.
