It’s very easy to make your greek yogurt at home. Using homemade yogurt is highly recommended.
Prep Time:8 hours
Total Time:8 hours
4 kilos regular Homemade Yogurt
A cheesecloth bag
Put the strainer over the bowl.
Pour the regular homemade yogurt in the bag made from cheesecloth. If you don’t have that kind of a bag, line the top of a bowl with a double layer of cheesecloth and fix it there with an elastic band and pour yogurt on it.
Fold the excessive top of the bag and put something heavy on it. I put a small mortar made of brass, but a large stone works fine too. This helps the straining process better. If you don’t have the bag, just skip this part.
Wait it this way in the refrigerator overnight. I let it sit there for 8 hours and it’s super thick and creamy, just like cream cheese. If you don’t want your Greek yogurt very thick, 3-4 hours will be fine too.
Transfer the strained yogurt into an airtight container and keep in the refrigerator. Use it in whatever recipes you like.
