Easy handmade fresh "drained yogurt" ♪ I found a special container at Daiso, a 100-yen shop, and bought it.
This container is named "Iodine Lip". There are even holes in the bottom. If you add yogurt and leave it overnight, the water will naturally drain and the taste will be rich.
Let's try it now. First, put kitchen paper on the inside of the container. When I tried using a coffee filter, it was just the right size.
Then place the container on a suitable cup and add the yogurt. The standard to put is about 200 ml. The mouth of the container is not very wide, so it is smooth to put it in with a small spoon.
After adding the yogurt, cover it and leave it in the refrigerator overnight. Be careful not to accidentally knock it down in the refrigerator. And the next day, when I opened the lid of the container ...
Compared to the first time, the yogurt bulk was reduced to about 40%. And the cup under the container is in a state where water has accumulated. Just leave it overnight and it will drain so much water.
The tightly condensed drained yogurt has a fluffy texture and rich taste like cottage cheese. You can use it in various ways, such as spreading it on bread, mixing it with dressing, or sprinkling honey on it to make it dessert-like. It is said that the water that has been removed (whey, whey) is also nutritious, so don't throw it away and use it for drinks and cooking.
"Iodine lip" is an item that allows you to easily enjoy a fresh taste like homemade cheese. If you see it at the store, please pick it up.
