Yogurt by Janet Fletcher
Yogurt: I like yogurt. It's a great breakfast food by itself, with granola or with fruit. I like to make yogurt though I haven't for awhile. To me the cover image of this book does not inspire warm, fuzzy feelings about yogurt. That is not something I really think even looks good, but that being said, the book description intrigued me and so I asked for a review copy.
What the book did do is inspire me to make my own yogurt again and when I make it to take the time to drain it and make a thicker yogurt. It inspired me to try it plain without sugar or gelatin added and to experiment with add ins like coconut, fresh fruit and maybe some choice nuts. The book gives recipes and ideas for breakfast, soups, meats, desserts, etc. Some of them I have no intention of trying, but some of them intrigued me like the Harissa-Roasted Chicken with Sweet Peppers or Yogurt with Mango, Tasted Coconut and Cashews.
If the only thing the book does for me is gets me to make yogurt again and experiment with a few new ideas for breakfast, it will have been worth it for me, but maybe, just maybe I will branch out and try something new like Roasted Tomato Bruschetta with Yogurt Cheese or Grilled Zucchini with Yogurt Sauce, Feta, Lemon and Dill.
Another thing I liked about the book was the detailed description about how to make yogurt at home. Now I just need to be able to justify buying a yogurt maker, but in the meantime, I do know how to make it at home without the fancy, schmancy equipment.
This book was given me by Blogging for Books for the purpose of reading and writing a review on it. All opinions expressed are my own.
