I tried twice now to make my own yogurt with no success. I followed this recipe the first time and my mom's the second. Both are almost the same; my mom adds one cup of yogurt to the milk and places the yogurt in a tepid water bath for the same amount of time, about 3 hours. So once again I have 4 cups of icky milk, with some lumps, some sourness and totally non drinkable..I give up.
But...my bread baking is getting better. My recipe is here but this time I sprinkled the unbaked bread with water and rolled it in a mixture of cornmeal , sesame seeds, oats and flax seeds, looks really rustic and tastes great.
