    I use a Donvier and am very pleased with it. You can make 2 quarts in 8 cups. If I am running low on milk, I fill the empty cups with warm water. I like to cook mine for about 10 hours. After you add flavorings homemade yogurt is not a thick as commercially prepared products.

    Mix in a little vanilla and a heaping tablespoon of powdered sugar and life is good. <img src=/S/yum.gif border=0 alt=yum width=15 height=15>

    Re: Yogurt maker

    Yesterday, I noticed that the Martha Stewart show was going to teach
    Jennifer Garner how to make yogurt, so I tried to watch the show.

    Alas, much of the show was pre-empted by George Bush's press conference, but
    I did garner (no pun intended) that it might not be necessary to have a
    yogurt making machine.

    I guess that I should find Martha Stewart's web site.

    I did find many articles on the web about making yogurt.

    Trying to find products with no added sugar <img src=/S/rtfm.gif border=0 alt=rtfm width=24 height=23> slows me down at the grocery store but I MUST have some sugar or other sweetener in my yogurt. I'm glad I know how to cook, otherwise I would be almost impossible to eat with out tons of added sugar and salt.

    You can make it in a wide mouth thermos, a yogurt machine is not necessary.

    I've made it quite successfully in a large screwtop jar, on top of the fridge where the air is a little warmer than the rest of the room. I did use reconstituted skim milk powder, that may stop it going off as easily.

    When I was a kid my Dad made yogurt in glass jars in the oven, perhaps in a pan of shallow water. The details escape me... Trader Joe's Organic Nonfat Plain is my current yogurt.

    To really make it yummy, we used to make it out of goat's milk! Sadly, I no longer have a milk goat!
