We live in northern Indiana. There are a lot of farms around here, some of them are dairy farms, many of them are crop farms, but we get the fun of watching the animals and the crops growing all season long. For this week’s Home Matters Linky Party #189 celebrating national daily month, I thought it would be fun to see what I could find about making different recipes with yogurt. Of course cheese is definitely one of our favorites in our family, but on these beautiful warm (sometimes actually HOT) summer days, yogurt sounds like the perfect food for any time of day. #Dairy #HomeMattersParty
I also have thought about learning how to make my own yogurt, so that is one of the recipes I found this week as well. We LOVE yogurt, and we already use it in smoothies, as well as plain or vanilla with fruit and granola or other crunchy cereal. We also like frozen yogurt, but the kind at the little yogurt shop in town doesn’t quite taste like real yogurt. I don’t know if it is or not, but all those different flavors, and then all of the pretty toppings make it seem more like ice cream than the tangy, fruity taste of yogurt.
And then I’ve also often wondered about the difference between “regular” yogurt and “Greek” yogurt. I had never heard of “Greek” yogurt until I had the opportunity to take a study tour where we traveled through several cities in Greece and then took an adventurous boat ride across the Aegean Sea to Istanbul. But that’s a story for another day. Now that I’ve had “Greek” yogurt, even though I still don’t really understand the difference, I know that I really prefer the thicker “Greek” version. So when I came across the article about making your own yogurt, and the article about the difference between the two kinds of yogurt, well, that just gave me the inspiration to learn a bit more about one of our favorite foods.
Here are the recipes I discovered while searching for creative inspiration for national dairy month – I’ll let you know how our experiment with making our own yogurt turns out. I hope you can join us for this week’s Home Matters Linky Party #189!
