Instructions for Salton Yogurt Maker

I love my Salton yogurt maker! It is so simple, easy to use and hassle-free. All you need is milk, powdered milk for extra body and thickness and a good yogurt starter. You also have to provide a clean environment and the appropriate, stable temperature for the best results. Below I will provide you with the best instructions for Salton Yogurt Maker.

  1. Add ½ cup of dry milk powder to 1 quart of milk (you may use skim or whole milk)

  2. Heat milk on the stove to 185-190° F. Stir frequently. While the milk is heating, go ahead and plug in your yogurt maker.

  3. Cool milk to 110-115° F. I usually put it in ice water. Keep stirring the milk while watching the temperature.

  4. Pour some of the milk into a clean glass and add ½ cup of plain yogurt with active cultures or 1 package of yogurt starter. Stir the mixture thoroughly until it is evenly mixed.

  5. Pour the starter mix into the remaining cooled milk and stir evenly.

  6. Pour the milk into your pre-heated Salton Yogurt Maker container.

  7. Leave in the yogurt maker 6-12 hours. The longer the yogurt incubates, the more tart it will be.

  8. Once the batch is done heating, place the container in the refrigerator and let it cool for several hours or overnight.

  9. That’s it! You’ve made a wonderful batch of delicious plain yogurt.

As your yogurt chills, it will get thicker and creamier. When it’s cooled, you can add your favorite syrup, fruit or jam. Or you can have it plain.

Making your own homemade yogurt is a great alternative to buying it from the supermarket. You are in charge of the contents and there’s no worry of consuming unhealthy preservatives and sugars. The Salton is inexpensive and does a beautiful job. There’s really no need to fork over tons of cash on a more expensive appliance. All you need is a yogurt maker that keeps the milk warm at a steady temperature for a few hours. Making your own yogurt is fun and I hope you find these instructions for Salton Yogurt Maker useful.
