Yolife Yogurt Maker

Yolife Yogurt Maker with Canning Jars

We have a brand new product available in the warehouse and I’m particularly excited about this one. For awhile now we have carried another line of yogurt makers which offered either a set of 6 oz. glass jars or a 2 qt. plastic container for making yogurt. We have regularly received feedback from customers that neither of these options is really a good fit for everyone. While having your yogurt in handy 6 oz. glass jars works for some people, the reality is that many families need to make yogurt in much larger quantities and prefer a large single glass container.

So I went on the hunt for a yogurt maker that was more versatile and allowed a glass container, large batch option. I’m excited that we can now offer the Yolife Yogurt Maker. The Yolife model comes with seven 6 oz. glass jars and a cover for the set of jars. But here’s what gets me excited: This yogurt maker also comes with a second taller cover (7″ high) that can accommodate several quart size canning jars or even a single 64 oz. glass jar (we have these available too as an optional add-on). Now you can make yogurt in all those canning jars you have around your kitchen and get away from plastic touching your food!

The price is right too, just $39.95 for a yogurt maker than can accommodate a variety of yogurt making needs. It works well with traditional cow or goat milk yogurt as well as dairy free varieties of yogurt.

Intrigued? Click here to check it out and let me know what you think. We will be expanding our line to include more types of yogurt makers shortly (including one that doesn’t require electricity!) and we always love feedback.

Making Pickled Green Beans

If you love pickles like we love pickles, you have got to try the fermented (pickled) green bean recipe on the Cultures for Health website. Oh. My. Goodness. They are delish!!

I had purchased the Fermented Vegetable Master and decided to give it a try with the green bean recipe. The recipe is simple enough and I had all the ingredients on hand. All you need are green beans, water, garlic cloves, red pepper flakes, fresh or dried dill weed (I used dried), freshly ground pepper and salt (I used Celtic Sea Salt). If you prefer, you can use a starter culture like our Caldwell’s Cultured Vegetable Starter or Body Ecology Starter Culture.

Seems easy enough, right? Well, if you’ve read my posts before, you know that I was nervous. Any time I try something new, no matter how simple it seems, I get butterflies. Still, I forged ahead. I followed the directions on the recipe, you can find it here, and the instructions on the Fermented Vegetable Master, put it all together, placed it on the counter and crossed my fingers.

I waited two weeks, checking them out every time I walked by. On the two week mark I opened them up and sniffed. Hmmmm….they smelled like pickles and they looked okay. I transferred them to two smaller jars, along with the liquid and then I hesitantly tasted one. Like I said, they are fabulous! Now go try this recipe. You’re gonna love it!
