Solar yogurt recipe
What a pleasure to eat these yogurts! The ideal temperature for milk to coagulate is 45°C, so the solar dryer is just perfect for this recipe, which requires only time and gentle heat.
Ingredients for 9 yoghurts
- 1 liter whole milk
- 1 yoghurt
Preparing solar yoghurts
- In a saucepan, bring a liter of milk to the boil (especially if it’s raw, otherwise there’s no need to boil it all the way).
- Allow to cool to 50°C.
- Add a yoghurt and whisk. The mixture should be between 42 and 45°C.
- Divide between clean glass jars or a large glass container.
- Place them in the solar dehydrator and leave to ferment for 8 hours.
- Place the yogurts in the refrigerator for at least 4 h. They are better after 48 h.
Enjoy your meal!
