Make homemade sheep milk butter

You can't buy sheep milk butter in the UK - Yet!!  (I'm working on it) Apparently you can buy it from Danone in Greece.

There are several ways to make butter at home:

  1. Pour sheep milk into the jar and screw on the lid. Shake jar until butter forms a soft lump, 15 to 20 minutes. Pour contents of the jar into a fine mesh strainer and strain out the buttermilk, leaving the solid butter. Remove the lump of butter add salt and wrap in plastic wrap.

  2. Instead of putting the milk into a jar you can use a food processor using the plastic blade - be warned it does take a long time so don't burn out the motor!

  3. Or you can buy a butter churn - Kilner make one that you may be able to get from your local cook shop or online.


Easy Homemade Yogurt

1ltr Sheep milk

160gms Woodlands yogurt (as a starter culture)



Put milk into a pan & heat slowly until nearly at the boil - about 80°C (don't worry if it boils, it'll still work)

Cool to about 40°C and whisk in the yogurt.

If you have a yogurt maker then you can pour into the jars and set the timer for 8hrs.

If you don't have one then apparently it still works if you put it into a flask and leave on the side overnight. (I'm yet to try this so let me know if it works!) Click here to see a EweTube video.

Click here it see EweTube video of how to make yogurt the traditional way, with culture.

20g Caster Sugar

Pinch of Salt

115g Plain Flour

55g Melted Butter




Put milk, eggs, sugar and salt in a bowl and whisk or put in a blender and blend. Add the flour a little at a time and mix until smooth.


If time allows put in the fridge and rest batter for 30 mins.


Stir in melted butter just before cooking. Heat pan to a fairly high heat with just enough oil to cover surface. wipe off any surplus with a paper towel, be careful not to burn yourself. When oil is hot put enough batter in to cover the pan with a thin layer, move it around to cover the whole pan.


Release the edges and lift up to see if it has browned, the top should look dry. Then, if brave flip it over, if not, use a fish slice.


Keep cooking and flipping until your batter is finished and you have a huge pile of pancakes.
