Our love for handmade pottery made us bring home this Polish stoneware pot a couple of years back, it was just the beginning, of course, and slowly we have added to our collection of beautiful hand painted pottery from Poland .
We use this particular pot to set yogurt and although it does not have that flavor, it does set better than our regular stainless or glass vessels.
Making yogurt is very simple, all it requires is a good starter or culture and you are 'set'...!!! Bring 4-5 cups of milk to boil and then set aside to cool. Cool the milk to lukewarm (warm to touch).
Spoon in 4 tbsp of yogurt into the warm milk, this acts as a starter, mix well. Make sure the starter contains live culture and is plain white yogurt without any flavoring. Keep covered, preferably airtight. On a cold winter day, keep the container in a warm place and an additional tbsp of starter helps. Give it about 3-4 hrs, do not disturb it during this time. After the yogurt is formed, store in the refrigerator. Make sure you save some yogurt as starter for your next batch of yogurt.
