Making Yogurt Is Easier Than You Think!

Before we embarked on our homemade yogurt primer, I assumed the process was a fussy hassle, but I'm happy to report that it's remarkably easy and mess-free! Another bonus: While you can buy an actual yogurt-making machine, you don't have to, and you probably already own most or all of the tools you need to get started.

Author Megan Steintrager, an Epicurious and Gourmet Live contributor who often makes yogurt at home, consulted several experts: Anne Mendelson, the author of Milk; Ashley English, the author of Home Dairy with Ashley English; and Jenny and Gino Ammirati who own Culture, a yogurt shop in Park Slope, Brooklyn. With their expertise, she created the ultimate guide to homemade yogurt, including step-by-step instructions, detailed information on ingredients and tools, and a classic recipe that produces a creamy and mild cultured-dairy treat without any of the additives found in a lot of supermarket options. And there's more good news: If you like thick, luscious Greek-style yogurt, all you have to do is strain your homemade batch.
