Simple Saturday Prep: Friendship Yogurt

I more than get by with a little help from my friends. Truth be told, I am lost without them. This week's Simple Saturday post is a gift from Janice Scully, a dear VCFA pal of mine. She's going to tell us how to make real yogurt! Yummy, yummy in rolly-polly tummy.

Janice tells me that people have been making yogurt for 2000 years! Dang...that a long time, don't you think? No wonder though, cause the stuff is just that good!

She also says that making yogurt feels like you're doing a science experiment. Maybe because there is weird bacteria involved in the culturing process, stuff with crazy long names like streptococcus thermophilus and lactobacillus bulgaricus. Good gosh! We eat stuff with names like that? I don't want to think about that right now. I just want to learn how to make that delicious stuff. Mmm, mmm, mmm.

Here's the supply list, 'yall. It's a little long for a Simple Saturday post, so I hyperlinked it to this post. And tomorrow I'll post pics featuring Janice's son making yogurt. Nifty plan, don't you think?

Janice says that all supplies need to be crazy clean. So crank up that dishwasher and let's get cracking.
