I am quite pleased with the canning kettle/heating pad set up I put together last night for the yogurt experiment. I've never done this before and I think it worked excellent! I won't be buying a yogurt maker; I'm thrilled this could be done with things I already have in the kitchen. This morning, I checked the progress and was pleased to see that the milk I put in the jars last night had turned into a very smooth and creamy yogurt! I put them in the fridge to cool, and anticipated trying them.
Lunchtime rolled around and the smaller of the jars I prepared was cool, so I cracked it open. It smelled WONDERFUL! And the taste .... EXCELLENT! Very creamy, with a texture like silk, and tangy but by no means tart. I will definitly be doing this again, and again!
