Homemade Yogurt

Karen wrote:

Does anyone make their own yogurt at home?? My grandma loves yogurt, but
she's reactive to sugars so I don't want to get her the commercial
types...Dannon is imported so it's REALLY expensive here... I would love to
make yogurt for her, and then use artificial sweeteners or fresh fruit to
sweeten... but have no idea how to go about doing it... any suggestions??
The yogurt machines I've seen in the stores are expensive and I've no idea
if they work well so I dun want to make a huge investment & then regret

She's not a vegan but is going towards vegetarianism....

Thanks in advance..


        Indians make yogurt at home all the time.  First you heat up about
two to four cups of milk.  Heat only till warm and not boiling (if it is
too hot the cultures will die).  Add about 1/4 cup leftover yougurt, cover
and put in a warm place overnight.  I usually stick it in the oven (don't
turn the oven on).  In the morning you should have perfect yogurt.  You can
play around with the amount of yogurt you need.
        I hope this helps.
