BUY Greek Yogurt Starter Culture ORGANIC

Greek yogurt is a heat loving thick and rich yogurt that contains live cultures L. Bulgaricus and S. Thermophilus. This yogurt is different from the others (except the Bulgarian) offered in our store, which are cultured at room temperature. But like the others, Greek yogurt starter may be cultured time and again.

Greek yogurt culture does require heat. We have never owned a yogurt maker, so if you do not have one either, we provide in our instructions the method we use. All you need is a large stock pot, a heating pad, and some thick towels. :-) We have used this method with success for many years. You can also google other methods. We have heard of the oven/pilot light method, but do not have any experience with it.

**TURN YOUR MILK INTO A HEALTHY LIVING PROBIOTIC FOOD!**

Greek yogurt starter culture makes a slightly tart, rich and creamy, yogurt. To make thick Greek-style yogurt, add one part whipping cream to 3 parts whole milk, and culture for roughly four and a half hours. If Greek yogurt made with part cream is not decadent enough for your taste, make Greek yogurt with just heavy whipping cream for an incredibly thick, outstanding Creme Fraiche that can be slightly drained to make rich, creamy Mascarpone cheese. Alternately, Greek yogurt may be made with whole, skim or non-fat milk for a creamy, less rich yogurt. Traditional Greek-style yogurt is strained yogurt, yogurt that has been sieved three times. To make traditional Greek-style yogurt, strain yogurt through a fine sieve until yogurt stops dripping; then strain through a small sieve, then a medium sieve until the whey dries up. Strained Greek yogurt will have a little more tang and increased thickness with each straining. Serve Greek yogurt plain or with the addition of fruit or maple syrup.

By setting aside some of the yogurt from each batch of freshly made yogurt as your yogurt starter or seed to make your next batch of fresh yogurt, our yogurt starters will last you indefinitely. No need to periodically replace your yogurt starters in order to replenish your yogurt supply.

We supply FRESH yogurt starter cultures enough to get you started making 2 cups of yogurt for your first batch. After that first batch, you will have enough starter to make larger quantities each time. Make once a week to sustain viability of the yogurt starter culture.

Instructions will be provided through a direct internet link. Please let us know if you need a hard copy sent with your order.

***HOWEVER, IF YOU WOULD PREFER A DRIED CULTURE, WE CAN SEND YOU WHAT WE SEND OUR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS, AS NOTED BELOW. PLEASE SPECIFY AT CHECKOUT IF YOU PREFER THAT. EITHER WAY IS FINE. DRIED IS BEST IF YOU THINK THE PACKAGE MAY BE SITTING IN INCLEMENT WEATHER FOR A PERIOD OF TIME IN YOUR MAILBOX.

**FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS, WE WILL SEND YOU DRIED CULTURE ON ORGANIC COTTON, enough to get you started making 1 cup of yogurt for the first batch, but then you can make a larger quantity for your second batch and so on. International shipping is very low as the weight of the dried cultures is very light.

**We use ONLY ORGANIC milk, ALWAYS.**

Please check out our store, as we will certainly combine shipping. We offer many cultures that are easy and fun to make at home and ones that we suspect your children will like as well :-).

*We ship very quickly after cleared payment, usually the same day or the next. We also answer emails instantly in most cases.

*We do guarantee our cultures to work for you if our instructions are followed. We will happily, quickly send out another if they do not.

*We also sell Viili, Piima, Buttermilk, Caspian Sea Yogurt, Fil Mjolk, and Bulgarian yogurt cultures as well so you can try as many as you like.

WE NOW HAVE A 5 PACK SAMPLER PACK THAT INCLUDES ALL OF OUR ROOM TEMP YOGURTS AT A DISCOUNT - PIIMA, FIL MJOLK, VIILI, CASPIAN SEA YOGURT, AND BUTTERMILK! YOU CAN EVEN SUBSTITUTE THE GREEK OR BULGARIAN FOR ONE OF THE YOGURTS IN THE PACK!

    Came in about two weeks. Pretty good as it came from the US and over a bank holiday. It took a few rounds of culturing to get nice and consistent results. But I like having my home made yoghurt for breakfast now and am hoping to try making loads of yoghurt based things.

    Good, fresh culture. Be ready for it: It arrives quickly and you'll need to make a batch pretty quickly. The instructions called for a rather shorter culturing time than I am used to (~4 1/2 hours) and the flavor is a little mild for my tastes, so I will push the next batch to try to achieve a more tart yogurt
