White Blessings – Homemade Yoghurt


Every year during Ramadan it seems to me as if the blessings of Allah directly go into the udder of the cows. Subhanallah, they seem to give more milk than ever during this sacred month. Whereas they slightly serve a family’s needs along the year, they now serve he whole community and people come and offer us milk every evening as a gift, alhamdulillah.

So with lots of milk in the fridge, we drink huge amounts, make juices, pancakes and sometimes also homemade yoghurt, which is delicious and so easy to do:

Heat up 1l of fresh cow milk, bring it to boil.
Let cool down until you can put your finger in without getting burned.
Then add 2 tablespoons of yoghurt (from the shop) and stir until well mixed.
Put the milk-yoghurt-mixture into glasses or a big bowl, cover it and pack it into a thick warm blanket in a warm place.
Let it rest without touching or moving for at least 8 hours.
Then it should be thick and you can put it now into the fridge to cool and to enjoy later with honey, fruits or plain.

Jumuah moubarak! May Allah bless these last holy nights of Ramadan for all of you!
