The new fermentation mode keeps the yoghurt cultures at the ideal temperature to produce thick, creamy yoghurt. There are several ways to make delicious homemade yoghurt but each method relies on being able to maintain a constant incubation temperature to allow the cultures to develop. Purchasing live yoghurt cultures and fermenting in milk. I will provide a detailed recipe for all the methods of producing Thermomix yoghurt in upcoming stories, but today I wanted to concentrate on the Easiyo yoghurt sachets.

Making yoghurt from scratch is actually far easier than most people realise. The trickiest part is figuring out how to keep your yoghurt at an even temperature of around 40 degrees Celsius while it is forming. Now, the Easiyo Yogurt Maker is sold with the assumption that you will buy the Easiyo sachets to make your yoghurt with, not make it from scratch, but there is absolutely no reason you need to do it that way.
The rest of the time I make my yoghurt from scratch, using one of the following methods. My kids go through a lot of yoghurt, so making it from scratch saves me a lot of money, plus I like being in control of exactly what goes into it.
Making yoghurt from scratch using fresh milk Heat 1 litre of milk almost but not quite to boiling — look for the point when it is just slightly frothy on top but not yet foaming up or use a milk thermometer if you have one. Heating the milk changes the protein to make it more conducive to making yoghurt with. It also kills off any bacteria that is growing in the milk and might compete with the yoghurt starter culture.
Cool the milk in the fridge until it is completely cold. Note, this is different to other methods of making yoghurt from scratch. This is not essential, but makes for a thicker yoghurt. Put the lid on tightly. Shake until mixed, the same way you would using an Easiyo sachet. Take about half a cup of the milk and mix it with tbsp of yoghurt, until they are well blended. Make sure the yoghurt is not too old, as your starter bacteria may have died.
If you use a flavoured packet you will get a very mild flavour through your yoghurt. Add this mix and the rest of the milk to the yoghurt container and shake some more to mix thoroughly. Fill the Easiyo with boiling water, up to the top of the red baffle, just as for the usual Easiyo instructions.
Put the container of milk into the Easiyo and leave for about 10 hours, depending how tangy and how well set you like your yoghurt the longer you leave it the tangier and better set it gets. Then take it out and put it in the fridge to finish setting, for 6 hours this will stop the culturing process.
Variation 2: Making yoghurt from scratch using UHT milk In response to questions in the comments, I have now tried making yoghurt using UHT milk, and I have to confess, this is now my favourite option.
It is exactly the same as option 1, without the heating and cooling of the milk, and works perfectly. You can easily keep a litre or two of UHT milk in the cupboard, without having to clutter up your fridge. Flavouring your Yoghurt There are different ways of flavouring your yoghurt, which can be done either before setting or afterwards, when serving.
One common method is to stir in some jam or some fresh fruit when serving. So for them, I sweeten before setting. When I make the yoghurt with milk I stir in the sugar or honey when the milk is hot so as to dissolve it effectively. The essence can be added at the same time. Experiment with the amount of sweetener you like to use. Two tablespoons is much less sweet than store bought yoghurt usually is, but still sweeter than some people like.
Honey gives a quite different flavour compared to sugar. Do not use Xylitol, which seems to inhibit the bacteria from growing. I believe Stevia is the same. You can use them afterwards if you like.
You can also use a few tablespoons of one of the Easiyo sachets as your starter culture, to create a very mild flavour, or more for a stronger, sweeter flavour.
When adding berries or other fruit it is better to add it when serving, as the fruit will just sink to the bottom of the milk before the yoghurt sets and could curdle your milk, depending on the fruit. More questions? I have them on my laundry wall, but I know other readers who have them up in their pantry cupboard or even the kitchen wall.
