Description

Amasi, or Amasai, is an African yogurt with the consistency of liquid yogurt that ferments at room temperature (mid 70s) - takes about around 24 hours. The taste is very mild. It can be strained so that its thicker like sour cream.

ABOUT SUMMER SHIPPING
We continue selling and shipping cultures in summer. Please know that all packages are chilled prior shipping and delivered to USPS office cold. We do not use ice packs. To make sure your order is delivered viable and healthy we now offer Priority Shipping. If you have any questions or concerns, please convo us and we will happily assist you!

You will receive 1 packet of dehydrated Organic Amasi starter. To rehydrate, pour the culture into a pint size glass jar, add 2 cups whole milk (cultures love fat), stir well and cover with a breathable cloth (coffee filter works great) and rubber band. Let it culture for 24 to 48 hours at room temperature. When it thickens, you can tip the jar and it should pull away from the jar as a mass instead of being liquidy. One it gets thick you can pull 1/4 cup from it and and now start a bigger batch at a quart. The basic ratio is 1 tbsp of starter to 1 cup of milk. Since it's a true heirloom yogurt you can keep doing that indefinitely. Once you get your start from the already done yogurt now you can flavor it. Just add fruits, add it to smoothies or you can make your own chip dip, ranch, french onion etc. You can even take the yogurt and strain it further with a fine mesh strainer or reusable coffee filter that you can find at most stores and get even more of they whey to come off. It makes a thick cheese.

*Raw Milk*
Please note if you are using raw milk, you need to pasteurize, as it can overpower the bacteria in the yogurt culture.


If you encounter a problem, please give me a chance to help you. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns or requests.

***Do not use if allergic to milk!
