The Yogurt Bible by Pat Crocker


The Yogurt Bible by Pat Crocker

Making yogurt at home is surprisingly easy, and these homemade versions taste so much better than any brand available from a shop. Perhaps most importantly, the home cook can control all of the ingredients, from organic cow's milk and soy milk from a farmer's market to ingredients found at a health food store or local grocer. Pat Crocker's recipes cover every taste and variation, from the sweetness to the thickness. The home cook needs just three key elements to get started: fresh milk (or other liquid), live bacterial culture and temperature control. The only equipment needed are a stainless steel saucepan, a thermometer and a constant heat source or an electric yogurt maker. The Yogurt Bible features 175 recipes: 35 stand-alone yogurt recipes followed by recipes that feature yogurt as a main ingredient or topping. These recipes provide endless ways to incorporate delicious yogurt into a diet or family regimen. The book features the basic method for lowerfat milk, soymilk, cultured rice milk, nut milk, fruit milk and coconut milk yogurts along with recipes for: French vanilla yogurt; Strawberry yogurt; Chocolate yogurt; Caramelized pear and onion flatbread; Tunisian carrot feta salad; Mushroom and artichoke risone; Courgette and leek gratin; Whitefish and vegetables with curry sauce in parchment; Shrimp Creole; Seared scallops in mushroom yogurt sauce; Fettuccine with crab and shrimp sauce. The Yogurt Bible proves that making yogurt at home is easy, fun and satisfying, and the results are very healthy - easily replacing commercial, higher-fat items such as sour cream, mayonnaise and cream cheese.
