Making Yogurt

We have wanted to try and make our own yogurt for a long time now, but didn't want to have a yogurt maker taking up more priceless space in our tiny kitchen.  We decided to take the plunge and give it a go.  We ordered this one from Amazon, not too bad and it'll pay for itself and save us money.  We figured it to be $.16 for a 6 oz jar, versus $1 or more when you buy it at the store.  It's SO easy too!!

First you boil some milk.

Then cool it to lukewarm or under 95 degrees.

Stir the yogurt starter or jar of plain yogurt in with some of the milk and then mix it with the rest.

Poor into the jars, plug in the yogurt maker, which just keeps it at a constant warmer temp.


10 hours later, smooth, creamy and delicious yogurt! Just refrigerate for a couple hours before eating.   I add a little honey and fresh berries, so good!  We're still experimenting with different milks and then we'll venture into other flavors.

I'm glad we tried it:)
