How to make yogurt

There is some really creamy yogurt next door at 66 Square Feet (the Food). Very easy to make.

One of the reasons I want to make my own yogurt is to cut down on the plastic I buy. All the little plastic containers we purchase are just the tip of the plastic iceberg. Re-using the same glass jar for my yogurt makes me feel better, and contributes a tiny bit less to the avalanche of waste we produce.

Another reason is that I want to know what is in my yogurt. I love Fage, which is made in Greece, all those carbon miles away, but as far as I know it is not organic. And I actually don't like any organic yogurt that I have tasted so far. So I will use local milk if I can, and big box organic if that is not possible.

Final reason, now that I have sampled it: it just tastes very, very good!

  1. I agree about the plastic. I have a storage cupboard full of yogurt containers, and I use these to freeze berries and soups -- so I feel moderately absolved. But it ain't the answer because ultimately it's just more packaging that we don't need.
