Quantities. I have listed this recipe as a quantity of 4 and that is because it fills 2 jars and is plenty for a family of four for the week.
Strain. Do you want very thick Greek yogurt? Then put the Greek yogurt over a sieve with kitchen towel and then after an hour a lot of the water will have come out of the yogurt and made it much thicker.
Silicone. It’s essential that you use a silicone whisk because otherwise it will damage the instant pot inner pot.
Milk. The milk you use matters. Use a skimmed (fat free) milk then you will end up with a fat free healthy yogurt. Use full whole milk with the highest fat content and you will have a creamy high fat yogurt. That same rule applies to the yogurt so do think about the yogurt you want.
