Another chapter of.... Would you eat this?

Recommended Posts

As the World Turns, will our stomachs? (dramatic music)....


We made yogurt Sunday afternoon using the cooler method. It was done at 12:30 am and we put it in the fridge. Just now, my husband found one quart jar that got left in the cooler in the garage. We are in Florida. It's been cool most of the time (50's). The yogurt looks perfect and smells fine so the question is.....

Would you eat it?

Hmm...if it looks, smells, and tastes okay, I would probably try it. According to this article from a Chemistry and Biology professor:

"The lactic acid [in yogurt] lowers the pH, makes it tart, causes the milk protein to thicken and acts as a preservative since pathogenic bacteria cannot grow in acid conditions. "
