What would you like to learn how to make in 2012?
It could be something complicated like puff pastry. Or something more practical like canning the vegetables from your garden. Or baking your own bread.
For me, I love yogurt and would love to develop a recipe for making my own. It’s a rare day I don’t start my morning with a bowl of yogurt and some fruit. It makes me feel good; like I’ve started my day on the right foot, even if I slide a bit later with a brownie.
There are different yogurt makers I want to research. But at a yogurt tasting I recently participated in, a member of the tasting brought her Greek mother-in-law’s yogurt as a final yogurt to taste. It was, hands down, the best yogurt I’ve ever tasted. It had that perfect balance of tart and creamy without either overpowering the other. Turns out she bakes hers in the oven, which is something I hadn’t considered.
Through the year I’ll be trying various techniques and recipes, in the hopes of getting just the right balance with a technique that I can realistically do on a regular basis. If you’ve got a great yogurt recipe you love and can recommend, please add a link to it in your comments below.
And I’d love to hear if there’s a dish / food you’d like to take on as a project for 2012!
Happy New Year!
