Anyone out there making their own yogurt? Is it financially comparable to buying it ready made? Does it taste better? Is it difficult? Is it worth the time and effort? Do you use a yogurt maker or just use a recipe and a kitchen pot? Have you tried both ways. Which one works best? Do you use fat reduced milk or full fat milk? What kind of starter do you use?
We eat a fair amount of yogurt and at over six dollars a tub we are going through quite a bit of money on yogurt alone. We buy the plain Greek yogurt. I'd like to make our own even if it is price comparable because I could be assured that no chemicals preservatives sugar or salt has been added. Of course, I don't know what's in the starter so that could be almost as bad as buying commercially prepared yogurt. Anyone have any answers...suggestions....advice....experience to share?
