Products in-stock ship within 2 business days

  • A reusable heirloom-variety yogurt starter, Bulgarian yogurt is perhaps one of the most popular yogurt varieties in the world and produces a rich creamy homemade yogurt, perfect for the home yogurt-making appliance, and is most similar to commercial yogurt in terms of taste. It is easy to make and the culture perpetuates from one batch to the next making it an economical variety to use for homemade yogurt. It is best made with whole milk and will be even more decadent if made with one part cream to three parts whole milk. Low-fat milk can be used but will result in a thinner consistency. If you are looking to replicate the taste of commercial yogurt at home, this is an excellent yogurt starter. Bulgarian yogurt starter culture contains live active bacteria. No need to continually buy yogurt starter. One packet of yogurt culture can be used to make unlimited amounts of homemade yogurt as it can be serial cultured by reserving a small amount of yogurt from the current batch to inoculate the next batch of homemade yogurt. With care, this yogurt culture can be used to make homemade yogurt indefinitely.
