You can purchase dried starter cultures, or just get some
plain yogurt containing live culture. Make sure the
carton says it contains "live culture" or "active yogurt culture."
1. Place the starter culture or active-culture yogurt in a large bowl. Add the dry milk
powder, if using. If you want a thicker yogurt, add 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin, mixed
with a small amount of milk.
2. Warm milk to 110 degrees Fahrenheit (use a thermometer) in a 1-2 quart saucepan or
3. Add a small amount of the warmed milk to the active-culture yogurt or starter culture and
4. Slowly add the rest of the warmed milk to the mixture. Stir well.
5. Cover the bowl and place the mixture into a commercial yogurt maker, an oven on very
low heat (200 degrees), a heating pad, or a warm spot in your kitchen. Leave until set,
about 6-8 hours. Use the thermometer to make sure the temperature stays at 100 degrees.
6. When set, refrigerate the yogurt for 8 hours before eating.
After the yogurt is set, you can stir in fruit and/or flavorings. To sweeten, try 2-4 teaspoons
honey or sugar.
