"Yogurt, yoghurt, or yoghourt is a food produced by bacterial fermentation of milk. The bacteria used to make yogurt are known as yogurt cultures"
So says Wikiwotsit
I used to make it myself years ago but when we kept goats I found goat's milk didn't make good yogurt, or at least it didn't the way I made it! Nowadays it isn't a regular thing on my shopping list, but this time of year is the in-between time for fresh fruit so I do buy some for deserts.
A friend who is into healthy eating swears by Skyr, it was on offer a week or two ago so I tried Strawberry and also the Honey one . Oh YUCK it's like eating some sort of face-cream! There seems to be a competition as to who can make the sourest yogurt. At the beginning of Col's treatment when he had to be careful of infections he was advised to eat the Alpro Soya Yoghurt but it isn't very exciting. I prefer something with a bit of fruit and flavour and not too sharp.
Black Cherry would be my yogurt flavour of choice although I think the last one I bought produced by Onken was tasteless. I go for whatever's on offer but avoiding those expensive ones with "corners".
This week I came home with ..............Leftovers?? Or to be precise LEFT-YEOVERS. It describes itself on the side as using left-over apples from organic fruit farmer Adam Wakeley. The ones that are not perfect and unsuitable for supermarkets.
It also says that for each pot sold 10p is donated to FareShare....... The charity that helps to supply food to vulnarable people. Apparently this is the fourth of these special yogurts each produced just for a short while, with help from Tescos... I hadn't come across them before.
BTW it was very tasty
And I've not been paid to mention Tescos or Yeo Valley yogurt but if they want to send me vouchers to buy them I wouldn't say no!
