Default Yogurt is easy to make!

Hi everyone,
For those of you with a little kitchen skill, real yogurt can be made right in your own home. You can use whatever kind of milk you like (skim, 1%, 2%, whole, organic milk or regular) and just add some active cultures from either from premade yogurt from the store, or you can buy the cultures dry. I have a yogurt maker, which takes some of the guess work out, but you don't need one. There are lots of directions on the web.

Once you have your own homemade yogurt, you can drain it for the greek-syle if you like which ups the protein. And you can add anything that suits your fancy like fruit or savory herbs to make salad dressings or toppings for veggies. There is even a little cookbook called Yocheese that has all kinds of great suggestions for using your homemade yogurt.

And yes, missmatch, store bought yogurt annoys me too
