Easy-to-make recipes for great homemade yogurt that is healthy and delicious.
Making yogurt at home is surprisingly easy, and these homemade versions taste so much better than any brand available from a store. Perhaps most importantly, the home cook can control all of the ingredients, from organic cow's milk and soy milk from a farmer's market to ingredients found at a health food store or local grocer. Pat Crocker's recipes cover every taste and variation, from the sweetness to the thickness.
The home cook needs just three key elements to get started: fresh milk (or other liquid), live bacterial culture and temperature control. The only equipment needed are a stainless steel saucepan, a thermometer and a constant heat source or an electric yogurt maker.
