Homemade Yogurt - an Introduction
Homemade Yogurt (yoghurt) is a healthy source of protein, calcium, magnesium, and other essential vitamins, whose active bacterial cultures aid in digestion. You can make yogurt in your own home for a fraction of the cost of the typical store-bought type and it requires no special equipment (other than a thermometer). This tutorial will guide you through the steps of making your own homemade yogurt, using photographs and simple instructions.
Why Homemade Yogurt?
Like most things homemade, yogurt you make yourself is just better:
- It tastes better
- It's better for you (no preservatives, sugar or chemicals added)
- It's less expensive
- There's no packaging waste
