Yoghurt / Yogurt; to make - recipe
To make your own yoghurt, you don't need any fancy machines.

I pint Milk - this can be semi skimmed or rich (whichever is your preference)
1 tablespoon (20ml) 'Live' Yoghurt
1. Bring the milk to the boil in a clean saucepan, watching for the last few minutes as it tends to boil over suddenly.
2. Cool to roughly blood heat/body temperature. This can be determined with the aid of a thermometer - 98°F, 37°C - or by judging wether it's roughly the same temperature as your finger.
3. Add the live yoghurt and mix this in thoroughly.
4. Pour the mixture into a clean glass bowl and cover with cling wrap.
5. Place this in a warm place, such as an airing cupboard, or near a central heating boiler, and leave for 10-12 hours.
6. Your yoghurt is now ready, and can be flavoured with a little sweetened fruit purée if you wish.
To make a further batch, simply reserve 1 tablespoon of your first yoghurt, and repeat the process.
