i love yoghurt. i can eat it like there's no tomorrow. but of course, i have to control myself otherwise, i'd gain weight like crazy also. now i'm trying to make my own yogurt. i haven't been successful with making one yet but here's how you can make your own yogurt:

make you own, greek-style yogurt by first warming 1 liter (35 fl oz) of UHT or sterilized milk to blood heat and then gently stirring in the contents of a small pot of natural yogurt. Pur the mixture into a warmed vacuum flask and screw tightly before leaving the flask and screw on the lid tightly before leaving the flask in a warm place overnight. The next day, pour the yoghurt through either a fine sieve or a piece of muslin draped over a colander to separate the thick yoghurt from any liquid whey. (You could use the whey in cooking or could even wash your hair with it!) If you don't have any UHT or sterilized milk, you need to bring 1 liter of pasteurized milk to the boil, let it cool to blood heat and then continue with the method described above.
