The best part about making yogurt, cheese mascarpone in the Thermomix is the fact that you don’t need to stand at the stove and stir the milk to keep it from burning or (my favourite) bubbling over. It is really easy. I got these rom Valerie’s blog A Canadian Foodie. It is attached to my blog list where she has lots of different recipes for cheese and other stuff. Check it out.
I paid 8 dollars for a 4 litre jug of organic milk and made yogurt, (yogurt cheese balls), and ricotta. Just the Ricotta would cost over 8 dollars if I bought organic. I also know the ingredients used in my food. What a novel idea!
2000g (2lites) whole organic milk
60 grams yogurt (natural no additives except yogurt culture)
Place milk in bowl and heat 80C/20 minutes/speed 2
Cool the milk until it reaches 37C. Don’t let it go below that!
Add yogurt and blend 5 seconds/speed 8
Pour into bowl and let sit at room temperature for 5 hour.
Take homemade yogurt and dump into Varoma tray covered with cheesecloth. Place in refrigerator.
Let drip and take out in morning.
