Homemade Yogurt & Labneh, a Follow-Along Virtual Event (FAVE)
Learn to make the best possible homemade yogurt with science backed details that will ensure your yogurt has the texture of the pros. I'll also show you how to make labneh, a Lebanese delicacy used much like hummus. I use a science-based approach to talk about why we do what we do rather than just presenting a basic recipe. You'll have delicious yogurt within 8 hours of class and labneh 4 hours later.
We'll send you a list of everything you'll need ahead of time as well as a link for purchasing any of the harder-to-find items. The aim is to keep it fairly simply so you don't have to stress about finding unusual items.
Time: 11am pacific
To follow along in this class you'll need to have on hand:
- 1 quart (or more!) cow's milk (any kind except UHT shelf-stable milk) - whole milk will give the best flavor but isn't required
- Yogurt culture - I've found this one to have the best flavor
- Optional: Lebanese Za'tar to flavor the labneh - you can make your own if you have the ingredients.
- Some way to incubate your yogurt. Check the bottom of this post for ideas. We'll discuss more in class
- Small pot - enough to hold the milk
- Quart sized mason jar or other clean container to hold your finished yogurt
- Large spoon to stir the milk. We like this one.
- Thermometer must register 115°-180°F
- Butter muslin (for draining the labneh)
I've assembled a kit with the Bulgarian yogurt culture and the butter muslin which you can add to your ticket if you'd like
