I finally decided I was up to the challenge of trying to make SCD yogurt at home. Making yogurt at home is something I have been toying with for a long while after having read about the benefits in ‘Breaking the Viscious Cycle’ by Elaine Gottschall. I was intimidated.I don’t have a yogurt maker, but I read that I could make yogurt in my oven. I watched a fabulous video on Salad in a Jar by Paula Rhodes (http://www.salad-in-a-jar.com/skinny-secrets/healthy-homemade-greek-yogurt).
I’m not so sure it turned out. Like everything I make, I am left wondering…is this right? This is my second batch. I threw out the first one. It didn’t thicken as much as I would have liked, or as much as I had expected it to. I am not really sure if it will have the benefits it should. It tastes okay..so I guess I will keep this batch.
I was so thankful to Paula at Salad In a Jar for answering my cries while I was experimenting with this. I was actually so surprised that she replied to my email, and so elated that I had connected to someone “out there” that took a minute out of their day to help me with mine. She inspired me to start my own blog. Thus..my first post is about yogurt.
