News Release

Take DIY to the Next Level with Introductory Yogurt Making Class

Sometimes the simplest recipes can be the most intimidating. The Cultured Palate introductory yogurt making class is for anyone curious about how to make yogurt, but who may be nervous about trying it. This July, roll up your sleeves, add a new skill to your kitchen repertoire and let Extension Nutrition & Wellness Educator and Registered Dietitian Caitlin Huth guide you through the yogurt making process.

The Cultured Palate yogurt making class will be 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, July 30 at the DeWitt County Extension Office, located at 8425 Katie Road, Clinton. Participants in this hands-on class will learn how to safely make yogurt at home with only two ingredients, try pre-made yogurt samples and culture their own jar of yogurt to incubate and enjoy later in a parfait, smoothie or just on its own.

Please sign up by July 23 online at or with the DeWitt County Extension Office at 217.935.5764. A $15 class fee covers cost of materials. Those who attend the class should bring a small insulated cooler or slow cooker and a clean towel to the class to transport their yogurt home. For more information, contact Extension Nutrition & Wellness educator Caitlin Huth at or 217.877.6042.

This class is also being offered from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 24 at the Piatt County Extension Office in Monticello and Thursday, August 9 at the Macon County Extension Office in Decatur.
