Discovering Yogurt at Home

I have always been curious about homemade yogurt. It just seemed so mystical and a tad bit dangerous to me. Everything that I had ever learned about food safety spelled out that milk is always to be refrigerated. Any form of bacteria in milk is not good. At least, that was the idea that I […]
