Well like 90% of America, the resolutions have begun.

Last night I made homemade yogurt.

1 gallon milk
4 T of starter (I used Dannon plain yogurt)

From this point I will simply use my own yogurt as starter.

In a stainless steel pan I warmed the milk to body temperature. When you touch the liquid it is not warm or cold.

Then I whisked in the starter.

Then I loaded the cultured milk into pint jars and put them in my new dehydrator.

I set the temp to 100 but that was too low so mid day I increased the temp to 115.

At bed time I put all the jars into the refrigerator.

This morning breakfast was 1/4 cup of my homemade granola, 1/4 cup of homemade yogurt and 1 T of local honey. Doesn't get any better than this!

Ummmm..looks great!I used to make homemade yogurt all the time. I had a Salton ygurt maker. Before that ,I had a gas stove with a pilot light that stayed on, so I just sat it in the oven with the door ajar.
