When it comes to Greek yogurt, we may think that the authentic version is made of cow’s milk and is strained of its own liquid to reach the perfect creamy consistency. But this isn’t actually true. Real Greek yogurt, the kind made not in factories but in villages, has never been strained and probably never will be. Here, yogurt is made with full-fat sheep’s milk. This rich milk, together with a combination of time and temperatures, is going to give us a yogurt that is already tart and creamy in its own pot, without the need to be strained at all. We visited Antonis Nikolopoulos at his dairy in Flokas, Greece, to learn how he makes yogurt from his sheep herd.
