~ Amasi Heirloom Yogurt Starter
NEW from Africa ~
Our Amasi yogurt starter makes a thin cultured beverage. Originating from Africa, it has a number of uses including making an excellent base for basting meats, addition to many dishes, or drank like a beverage. This yogurt culture can also be added to milk and consumed as a dairy beverage. Doing so adds beneficial cultures to the milk and many people feel it helps replace beneficial bacteria lost during the pasteurization process.
As a mesophilic yogurt culture, this yogurt starter cultures at room temperature. To make a batch of homemade yogurt, the yogurt culture is simply added to milk, stirred, and then allowed to culture on the counter before being placed in the refrigerator.
This yogurt culture can be serial cultured: a small amount of homemade yogurt from the current batch is reserved to inoculate the next batch of homemade yogurt. With proper care, the piima yogurt culture can be used to make homemade yogurt indefinitely. Just save some of the last batch as a
starter for the next batch.
Our yogurt starters are maintained on organic cow’s milk, packaged and shipped fresh to you. We send enough starter to get you making you own culture, plus some for a backup.
