Is it hard to make yogart at home? More expensive? I saw a yogart maker on sale and my kids go through tons of yogart, fruit parfaits. I hate going to the store every few days.

Not sure about making it that way, but I have made it in a crockpot  with this receipe. It sets better if you cool it in the crock. The less moving and stiring the better.

and you get tons of yogurt. That is basically the reason I stopped doing it. It was too much for us to eat. We got sick of it. But very easy,  you just have to make sure its timing is convient for your schedule.

Thank you, how long does it stay good for?

She says 10 days then after that use it instead of sour cream or buttermilk. It has been 6 months sine I made it, But I am thinking that is right, that we have eaten it up to 2 weeks and then used it instead of sour cream in receipes.

You need to save a bit of it as a starter for your next batch. So then you don't have to buy anymore yogurt. So no one eats all the yogurt. I am pretty sure that I didn't strain mine. I just put the crock in the fridge to set up. That might have made it firmer and the stiring less of an issue.

Funny. I have not made any but I was just looking at the crockpot recipe saying to myself I should make some of this.

Yes, don't waste your money on the yogurt maker (I didn't even know there was such a thing), use the crockpot. :)
