Sometimes, you want to make something yourself. Homesteading Homemade Yogurt fits the bill. It’s easy and a way to use up a tiny bit of leftover yogurt and make a LOT more of it, inexpensively. I think it tastes better, too. It’s not as tangy, has a smoother flavor and will thicken the longer it cures and is in the fridge. It’s worth making and a dollop is lovely on THIS breakfast or dessert tart.
