Make yer own yogurt

1. You'll need:

  • a cup or two of active-culture yogurt
    (sorry, this is a recursive recipe)
  • at least a litre of milk
  • some jars

2. Here's what you do:

  1. Scald a big pot of milk (this means not-quite-boil-but-almost, or 185°F for the fussies with a thermometer). If it boils, you fail. Throw it all away and start anew.
  2. Stir it a bit while it's heating up so it doesn't form a skin.
  3. Wait until you can stand to touch the side of the pot.
  4. Take a spoon of hot milk at a time and mix it with the cup of yogurt. This slowly warms it up so it doesn't freak out when it hits the hot milk.
  5. Dump it in the milk and stir it around so it desolves
  6. Put it in some jars and put them in your (room temperature) oven
  7. Leave the oven turned off, but maybe turn the light on for a tiny bit of heat
  8. Go sleep until morning
  9. Chill in fridge
  10. Enjoy with fruit and granola

3. Theoretical result:
