My husband is not sold on the homemade yogurt I've been making each week, preferring to buy a name brand organic with fruit on the bottom to take in his lunch. Sooo..of course the wheels were turning... and I decided to try making my own.
I'm using 4oz. canning jars which may be a little small but the jelly jars are a little too big for an individual serving. We had some blackberries in the freezer so I used a bag of those with a little sugar and cornstarch to thicken them. Because the fruit was hot, the yogurt wanted to mix right in with it which would be fine but wouldn't look as nice as I'd hoped. I put a TBSP of the fruit mix in the bottom of each jar and popped them in the freezer.
After about an hour, they were nearly solid so I filled the rest of the jar with a batch of homemade yogurt, topped each with a lid and ring. Voila! My own fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt!
You can find the recipe I use to make yogurt from raw milk here.
