Today I am enjoying my forced retirement by doing something I have wanted to try!
I am making Greek Yogurt!
Yesterday my new yogurt maker made a wonderful quart of organic 2% fat yogurt. I kept in in the yogurt maker container overnight in the fridge. Today, I bought 2 yards of cheese cloth which I brought home and sterilized by boiling.
Then I draped the cheese cloth over a large strainer and dumped in the yogurt from it's tub.

Here is a close up of the liquid whey draining down into a glass bowl. I am letting it drain for several hours......

with the cheese cloth folded over the top to keep it clean.

When it is ready, it will be much thicker than regular yogurt and still not as high fat as sour cream! I love it with honey on fruit with or without cereal!

I'm definitely going to try this - checked on ebay for the Salton yogurt maker - I almost bought one last year off Amazon for about $20. or $25. - talked myself out of it! It was almost $70. today on ebay with 17 bids!!! My husband's niece fills a clean qt. jar with milk and a couple Tbsp. yogurt and sits it on the back of her fridge with the lid slightly ajar- says it works great overnight just from the heat from the fridge.

I really like your hair - I'm just not ready to go gray yet either! Where do you buy that color? Thanks, Vicki
