Now, I know we all have busy lives, and I definitely am busy. Â So one of the short cuts I usually take is that I buy my Greek yogurt from Trader Joe’s. But the other day I had a gallon of milk that was about to expire, so I remembered that whenever that happened to my mom, she would just turn it into yogurt so that it doesn’t go bad. (Greek Yogurt Recipe) Â I poured it into a big pot, brought it up to a boil, added my starter and then set it aside and prayed. Â I hadn’t make yogurt in so long that I was hoping that I didn’t forget anything. Â I put it in the fridge and the next morning…POOF!!!! I had yogurt!

The whey had nicely separated to the top and the yogurt was nice and thick. Â Now I like my yogurt a bit more sour, so I called my mom up and asked her, how do I get it to have a more sour flavor? She said uncover it for 2 to 3 days and make sure NOT to pour off the whey. Â Now I have a huge tub of amazing yogurt that I can use for so many different recipes or just enjoy as one of my parfaits. Â Not to mention it’ll save me some MONEY!
