Organic Balkan Yoghurt Starter
Traditionally Balkan yoghurt is made in small and individual batches rather than in large vats. Our organic Balkan yoghurt starter produces a yoghurt that is fairly translucent in colour with a reasonable thickness and can be considered a set-style yoghurt. This yoghurt does not get as thick as its neighbouring alternative the Bulgarian yoghurt, but still holds its shape well on a spoon. Set-style yogurt is popular as both a homemade and a commercially produced yogurt. It thickens evenly and sets more firmly than stirred-style yogurt. It is good for Indian recipes and use in curries and sauces. It contains a range of Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus bacteria. This is a thermophilic yoghurt that requires a yoghurt maker to produce consistent results.
