When our kids were little I used to make yoghurt as we consumed a fair amount. It was cheaper to make your own than to buy the commercial yoghurt.
We bought a Decor Dairyo way back in 1983
and it was used regularly until the thermometer was dropped by me! We had some difficulty in getting a replacement thermometer even though the instructions in the back cover said it was possible to obtain replacements.
We had to go with a candy thermometer and that seemed to do the job ok.
Now that it is just my husband and I at home we don’t consume as much yoghurt and I had got out of the way of making my own. After my elder daughter had borrowed the Decor Kit to make yoghurt for her family I thought I would give it a try again. The Decor Dairyo is now back with us and today I made my first batch of yoghurt for a few years.
I had forgotten how easy it is to do. Added to the ease is the fact that we now own a digital thermometer so we can get an accurate reading of the temperature when heating and cooling the milk.
The table of contents shows you the other dairy treats you can make using the Decor Dairyo.
When checking to see if you could still buy this item I found that it is no longer made. I guess that makes ours an heirloom!
You may be able to find one at an op shop.
