When I make it (boil the milk, add the starter, let it set in the machine for 10 hrs and in the fridge for four) it is plain. But even adding fruit or honey doesn't make it anything but plain yougurt with fruit or honey. The honey just lumps itself no matter how much I mix it and the fruit becomes bitter. How do you get the smooth sweet taste? I've added vanilla bean (no go) vanilla extract (separated the yogurt). Sugar (became gritty) powdered sugar (texture was bad), Steviea (liquid separated) .I've added sugar to the fruit, pulverized it into a liquid and still it won't do much. I've even put jam & mixed it and it comes out like plain yogurt in jam. The more I mix the yogurt the more it becomes like a liquid. (like the Indian drinks). Any idea what I am doing wrong? Any hints?
I have a Sanko machine and the Sanko company is now defunct....
And please don't tell me to buy yogurt. That stuff is nasty...except for Siggies' Icelandic (to us any way).
