Looks yummy! I tried this week to make yogurt it turned out curdled and separated big time. Wondering where I went wrong?

I'm curious, what recipe did you use? Maybe not enough or too much yogurt culture. Just a guess, I haven't had that happen yet. I'm going to be making another batch next week, since we'll be out of town until then, and I'm hoping to document my steps to put on my blog. I'll put it up here when I do too.

Its really easy if you have a gas oven with a pilot light - the oven is the perfect temperature for making yogurt.

I start with a half-gallon of whole milk and scald all but one cup, which you leave cold and mix with two tablespoons of yogurt (get the best you can - I use the creamy greek stuff). Add the scalded milk to the cold milk/yogurt mixture, and put the whole thing in the oven in a glass crock for 6-8 hours (more if it needs it).

I normally just use the end of one batch to make the next.

I'm new to this site (and quite possibly just a Luddite!), but is there a recipe somewhere that goes with this lovely photo? (Thanks for yours, Rocketship!) I'd like to compare a few versions before I get brave and try this on my own. Thanks!

CF - welcome! Try searching 'yogurt' (or any other topic) in the search field at the top right-hand side of the web page. There are a few discussion in the Cheesemakers group, too!

Thisis the recipe I worked with and tweaked just a bit. It is delicious -I'm working on the step-by-step for my blog with pictures very soon.

Tory, the link takes me to a page that says "this page was not found." ??? Anyhoo, I don't want to make you work. Perhaps I'll stumble across it while searching? I'll also keep an eye out for it on your blog. Yanno, once I figure this site out well enough to find folks' blogs. ha!

Sorry, I think the link had a misspelling in it. The following link will take you to my blog and there is a link to the recipe from there. http://champagnewishesandcoupondreams.blogspot.com/search?q=yogurt or here
