Matsoni Yogurt Starter
Product Review (submitted on April 29, 2014):
I really like this yogurt. I've tried villi and the Greek yogurt as well as using various store bought yogurts as starts for my own home made yogurt. So far I think Matsoni is the best for flavor (mild, just a little tart - like what you expect from yogurt - and there are no strange flavors that you have to get used to). It is a little thinner than what most people would expect for yogurt, but it's really easy to strain and it's so easy to make since you just add a little of your last batch to milk and stir - no heating - that it makes up for needing to strain it a little. As it is, it's perfect for adding to recipes, making smoothies, making dressing or sauces and you really don't need it thicker than it is if you eat it with nuts and berries or other things like that.
I would definitely encourage anyone who is new to ferments and making their own yogurt to try this one first.
