Bulgarian Yogurt Starter
Product Review (submitted on November 24, 2013):
I decided to try this starter so that I would not have the added expense, per batch, of a packet of Cultures for Health "traditional flavor yogurt starter," which is what I have used for years. I just made my first batch with the Bulgarian starter (after activating the starter, of course). I used homogenized full fat milk from our local dairy. It set up well in my yogurt maker and tastes fresh and delicious. It is quite thick, but we still prefer to strain it. The strained out whey goes into my husband's next batch of bread. The yogurt was a bit lumpy compared to my previous yogurt results, but after straining it I beat it with a spoon and it is now nice and smooth.
