If at first you don't succeed...

Hi all, Colton here again.  Just had to post a quick note to say that sometimes, a presumed failure can turn out to be a great success!

I must confess that I have a bit of a sweet tooth (as you might have guessed from my previous ice cream post).  So when Mom suggested I help her make cappiccino yogurt from some of our goat milk, I was more than willing to help.  We heated the milk to the appropriate temperature, added the required amount of live yogurt culture, and left the mixture in a warm environment to let it ripen.  After the suggested time was up, we checked on the progress of our yogurt and found it to still be very thin.

 Now homemade yogurt is not expected to be as thick as the store-bought variety (they use gelatins to thicken theirs).  Ours was really thin...not much thicker consistency than the beginning mixture.   Not exactly sure why it didn't set well.  Likely the yogurt culture we used was weak.

 But the smell was fantastic, so we decided to taste test.  It was absolutely delicious!   We popped a cup in the microwave to heat, and it was the tastiest cappiccino EVER!  And healthy too!  Look out Starbucks...we may be on to something here!
