Lakeland - my foray into yoghurt making

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Lakeland - my foray into yoghurt making

Postby MrsWWoof » February 14th, 2015, 7:45 pm

Decided to have a mooch on the Lakeland website earlier when Wildfood was off air and have ordered the following:

Electric yoghurt maker - £19.99
Spare bowl for the above - £4.99
"Masha" - £34.99 - the main reason for this being Steve's Aunt and Uncle (extremely set in their ways about food) eat mashed potato every day. She still uses an old fashioned potato masher but has really bad arthritis in her hands so this causes her a lot of pain. I'm hoping this gadget will relieve much if not all of the pain for her.

Looking forward to getting the yoghurt maker and greek yoghurt is my favourite so any suggestions/recipes gratefully received.

How lovely! I think a dedicated yogurt maker must be rather nice, I have only ever made it in a flask.

There is an article in the latest Sainsburys magazine about Greek yogurt (or Greek-style if you are not in Greece!). The process seems to involve straining they whey off. The writer is visiting a chef who made some for her by heating full cream milk to 90C, whisking as it heated, then cooling to 45C and putting in the oven at 45C for 2 - 4 hours, keeping it completely still. It is ready when it starts bubbling, then it is strained and kept in the fridge. I don't know how you would do that in a maker but would probably just do it the usual way then strain it.

Greek style yoghurt is my favourite so it will be this type I would like to perfect.

I had an electric yogurt maker for years, it made nice yogurt but it was the kind that makes 6 little pots, I think a single large bowl is much more practical

Hope the masha works for Steve's aunt.

My Mum used to have one of those yoghurt makers Sue. We used to enjoy taking the pots to school for a mid morning snack with fruit.

Oooh, mooching on the Lakeland website ...... now that is a dangerous thing to do ;) I would have to cut up my credit card first :lol:

However, buying a yogurt maker would be the very last thing on my list (well wouldn't be on my list at all) - yogurt is something I only eat in small quantities - a large tub lasts me ages, well beyond the use by date (not that I ever bother about that when it comes to yogurt ;) ), it still tastes the same :lol:

I can get through a 500g tub of greek yoghurt over two days - that's only having it for breakfast with fruit and not taking into account any I may use in cooking.

It wasn't the Easy Yo one Hazel. Can't recall the brand but it's the one for sale at £19.99.

Getting excited now as I've had an e-mail saying my order has left their warehouse.

I did spot the heated airer BB and was tempted but then decided my homemade version is cheaper - I put washing on coathangers then put them on the curtain pole which is above the radiator in the spare room. I have to justify things I buy from Lakeland but I have to say I was very tempted by much more than I ended up buying. I was quite pleased with myself at how restrained I managed to be.

My mother bought a electric yoghurt maker back in '75, when we were being reintroduced to the whole concept by the appearance of Ski yoghurts in the supermarket. I used to think it was blurrggggh at the tender age of 8! Love it now. I have an EasyYo, but must admit I don't use it very often. I should...

And now I feel my hand creeping towards my Lakeland catalogue... dangerous.

Me too. Can't live without mine either - 6 or 7 times a year. I have ordered one for a lovely young friend who lives in a small and often damp, appartment and is expecting a baby in April.

Trouble is, there's a branch of Lakeland directly in my path when walking to & from work. It's OK in the mornings because it isn't open yet when I walk past but on the way home.... :oops:

We tried the masha, it works very well.
I did a competition for one too, and the person who won it came back to me to let me know how much they'd appreciated it, for same reasons -- arthritis in the hands meant normal masher difficult to use.

I have often looked at yogurt makers - Greek style is the only type I like and like you I can go through several tubs in in week Teri, so I'll be very interested in what you think about it.

I love my heated airer - it's invaluable for bedding but I don't know if I'll bother with a cover for it - I just cover it with a fitted sheet...works for me!

I use a ricer for my potatoes too, have had it for more years than I care to remember.

Bet you can't guess where I bought it from LOL.

Will update on both products when tried. I'm going to try the masha before giving it to Steve's Aunt as she will need to be given a practical demonstration.

Looking around the internet it looks like it will be a case of use the machine to make the yoghurt and then strain it to get the thicker consistency but will wait to see what the product instructions say.

I did find a heated yogurt maker was much more consistent than vacuum flasks or the airing cupboard

I don't "get" Easyo - why make yogurt at hoe using powdered New Zealand Milk instead of liquid British milk? And I don't think it works out much cheaper than buying yogurt, if any (though I can get huge pots of Greek style yogurt quite cheap round her, may be different if you are relying on major Supermarlets0

Agree about the Easi Yo - it's more expensive using their kits unless you get a good offer. I just use the yoghurt maker and a starter of a bit of greek yoghurt mixed with milk - I do buy the fruit squirts that Easi Yo sell as find them less sweet than adding jam when I want a bit of a topping on yoghurt or porridge

i get the big pots of greek yoghurt from lidl. excellent value - and you get a plant pot (or a soup bucket for the freezer) with a lid and a handle when it's finished.

I'd be taking something that needed an ice bucket to a picnic :-)

Also, don't think Steve would be overly impressed if he went to pour a coffee from the flask during his working day and was greeted by a lump of tepid yoghurt in his cup :-)

Well, the first batch of yoghurt is "cooking" for want of a better word and due to be ready at 7pm so I will chill it overnight and try it for breakfast in the morning. I used regular milk and a tablespoon of greek yoghurt. In their leaflet it recommends addingbpowdered skimmed milk to the milk as you're heating it and then after the eight hours in the machine, straining it through a double layer of muslin - this will be my next experiment. I'll update tomorrow. The machine is smaller than the old style ones, having only the one pot rather than the five/six smaller ones.

The masha will probably be tested tomorrow.

Sounds good MrsWW

Trying to think of a better word than "cooking" -fermenting isn't right somehow neither is maturing :?

Cooking it is then :D

Some time try using UHT milk instead of heating fresh I remember when I used to make a lot if yogurt the UHT flavour went away entirely and you don't really have to heat it up as the UNT process denatures the protein (which is why you simmer fresh milk) and gives a good texture

And of course it is very convenient being able to keep a shelf of suitable milk.,

Well, it worked!

It looks and tastes like yoghurt. I'm impressed. Not quite thick/creamy enough for my liking so I'm going to try different types of milk then half of each pot will be eaten "as is" and the other half I shall strain as per greek style yoghurt.

Watch this space for experiment results.

That's how we do it, with UHT milk and powdered milk added. Makes a good thick yoghurt although not quite as thick as Greek yoghurt.

Can you still buy muslin nappies Teri ? I do know where you can buy a roll of the stuff, but probably too much for your needs.

Not sure about the nappies. I do have some muslin, it's just a case of remembering the "safe" (but not necessarily logical) place I put it in. Going to start with the kitchen as I would definitely have bought it for something food related.

Muslin having diapered has come back in little packets (see link) - search for butter muslin or you only find baby nappy linings
I think I even saw the Tala one it in Wilkinson's - so many shops stock Tala now

Right, back from the supermarket with UHT milk, sterilised milk and powdered milk. Also got some of those paper coffee filters and the remainder of yesterday's yoghurt is now dripping happily away. I will look for the muslin I know I've got tucked away somewhere but these were cheap enough at £1 for 40 and I can just throw it out when I'm done with it instead of using further resources/time to wash and sterilise muslin.

Not wishing to waste anything - is there any culinary use for the strained liquid?

Will update on the results of straining this initial, basic batch.

First batch has now dripped through - it's lovely, thick and creamy. Think I'll try a combination of sterilised milk and milk powder tomorrow.

Does anyone have a T&T recipe for scones using the whey before I go searching on tinternet? Thanks Kitewatcher :-)

How about cossetting?

Re scones, I forget which of the lovely foodies gave me their T&T recipe but I've been using it ever since and it's never failed. It doesn't specifically refer to whey but just sub it for the sour milk. 250g (plain) flour, 4 tspns baking powder, 1/2 tspn salt, 50g softened butter, sour milk. Line baking tray with paper, heat oven to gas 5. Sift flour, salt & baking powder into bowl, rub in the butter, add enough sour milk to make a dough, cut fairly thickly into rounds, brush with milk or beaten egg, bake for 10-12 minutes. Sometimes I add a wee bit of sugar if I'm making sweet scones, or cheese/herbs for savory ones. :chops:

Thanks Seatallan, I shall task Steve with scone making when he comes up on Friday afternoon.

Got another pot "cooking" at the moment - sterilised milk with powdered milk and my own starter :-)

Will make another in the morning as Mum's visiting tomorrow evening and she's put in an order for a pot.

Thanks for the scone recipe. Had to go and walk the dog. Brrrrrrrrrrr there's a cold wind today.

On a totally different tack. OH and I had lunch in the Cardiff Jamie restaurant last week and I had calves liver - and delicious it was - and I asked if the veal was rosy veal(high-welfare) and I was assured that not only was it rosy veal, but Welsh rosy veal. This to me was good news!

On the question of muslin. Aldi were selling three muslin nappies for £2 something recently. After using one for straining jelly, I think, I just chucked it in the washing machine. I know Mothercare sell them.

When I make yoghurt with my Easyo I usually add a tablespoon of powdered milk to the milk to thicken it a bit.

Re: Lakeland - my foray into yoghurt making

Well, for those interested and after experimenting this week, 1.5 pints of sterilised milk, 2 tblsp of powdered milk and a good heaped tblsp of yoghurt from a previous batch makes wonderfully creamy greek style yoghurt that doesn't need straining.

Masha update - Steve's Aunt tried it for the first time today and she absolutely loves it. She says it took about 20 seconds to mash the potatoes with no lumps whatsoever and gave her no pain at all to her arthritic hands. She told me that before I got her this, the pain had got so bad she was thinking of resorting to buying powdered mashed potato. I'm really pleased it's worked out so well.
