Morning, oh wise and wonderful ones,  wave

 

I've been making my own plain Greek Style yoghurt for some time now (using the wide mouthed flask method).  During yesterdays organisation of the freezers I found a excessive quantity of summer/autumn fruits so fancy making some fruit yoghurt as a change.

 

The question is can I add the fruit at the initital stage?  I think this would give me a more flavoursome yoghurt than just stirring the fruit through at the end but not sure it would work.

 

I am willing to experiment however, thought I'd as here as you seem to have most of the answers between you, and if anyone has done this it might save me time and money.

Morning your wonderfulness!

I prefer adding the fruit at the end. Your yoghurt may not "set" with certain fruits due to acidity or enzymes. The fruit seems to taste fresher if it doesn't cook in the yoghurt during the set time. I can vary how much/what kind of fruit according to the mood or the person. YMMV.

Sorry Josie,

 

I forgot to say Thank You

 

As for YMMV .... What's new I can have been cooking something for years and through lack of concentration  wine, or substituting an ingredient, I can get a curve ball of a result, but hey it all adds to the excitement that is life.
