Good recipe for homemade yogurt made without any "fancy" equipment. It's very tasty and you can flavor it any way you like! You could add a fresh strawberry puree and granola! I've made this several times. Its as easy as it looks. NOTE: The "Cook" time is actually the "incubation period" while the yogurt cultures grow in the milk mixture overnight.
