Homemade Yogurt

Back when I was in college I used to make my own yogurt. Since then I have considered myself far too busy (and no doubt far too self important) to make my own yogurt.

Well that was forty years ago. And now I’m a man of leisure.

I thought I might have lost my magic. But nope. Not at all. I just took my first batch of homemade yogurt out of the incubator and put it in the refrigerator. It turned out quite well!

In the intervening years I have had an extensive and satisfying career in the food processing industry, so this go round I controlled the temperature far more precisely. I can’t say that the yogurt came out any better, but in the bad old days I did have an occasional failure.
