There are just some things where the Down Under bits of the world excell over the USofA.
Yoghurt making is one!
We have available a cheap
simple solution to making the most delicious yoghurt anywhere, anytime, at sea, in storms, using no electricity (apart from cooling). This stuff is so good even Mr Schoonerdog will be prowling the boat
near the galley
waiting for you to open the door!
All you do is boil some water.
Mix the sachet of powder and cold water into the plastic 1 litre jar (on right in photo).
Then you put the plastic jar in the plastic thermos container (second from right in photo). Pour in hot water to the line. Seal.
Wait 12 to 24 hours.
Put in refigerator.
The flavour we like is Greek Style - regular, not low fat!
Its much nicer than the Natural, or any of the flavoured powders.
We flavour with honey (YUMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!) or fruit of real fruit puree.
We also use it in dips with french onion soup powder or with finly chopped Dill, sensational with a little lemon juice!
Now its even available in the USA (but not Canada) Delicious Yogurt Made Easy - North America
This is the one we love and recommend:

Greek style is a Mediterranean
style of yogurt that is extremely popular in Europe
and the Middle East. It is a full-cream, plain yogurt that is ideal for those that like their yogurt very thick. It is especially good as a base for savoury dips, dressings and sauces or a great low-fat substitute for sour cream, cream or cream cheese. Also good for those that require good sources of absorbable calcium, protein and milk fat.
