Nigel Slater's Secret to Yogurt Zen
A few hours and a hot water bottle are all the tools you'll need to transform regular milk (plus two tablespoons of live-cultured yogurt and a bit of milk powder as a secret ingredient) into the velvety yogurt of your dreams! The Guardian's Nigel Slater waxes poetic in describing his affinity for this ancient dairy product, and shares his technique for achieving yogurt zen, and a fabulous recipe for making your homemade yogurt a star at the dinner table too!
Swaddled in a snow-white towel, my little bowl of homemade yogurt is tucked up with my hot water bottle, calmly doing its thing. Soft, quivering, its surface as still as a village millpond, this is yogurt as it was meant to be, without sugar, fruit or flavouring. A pot of gentle, unsullied purity.
