Making homemade yogurt

I've wanted to try making homemade yogurt for a while, but it seemed a bit daunting. . .but, I finally bought the supplies, found a recipe, and decided to give it a go.

Here are the jars I made in one batch:

Here is my first bowl, topped with some jam and honey.

It was delicious! However, the texture seemed a bit gooey. . so I did some more research. I don't think I let it set up long enough. The recipe said 4-6 hours but it seems that 10-12 is best. I'll try that next time.

It's too bad the cats don't like this. . .all the more for me! Ha!

I remember Mom making yogurt back in our Gaspé days, can't remember who she got the starter from, though.

It looks good, even if gooey! If it's sweet, Nicki will drive you crazy for it, he loves yogurt. But not the plain stuff. LOL.

Since I have problems with milk cultures, I have never thought about making my own!

That looks delicious! I may have to give it a try. I eat a ton of yogurt and the good stuff is expensive!
