Thankfully Marisa McClellan, author of the wonderful blog, Food in Jars, has a solution to the expense and waste of buying store-bought yogurt: make batches at home in Mason jars!
While the Mason jars look sweet, they also serve a purpose in making the yogurt as well. Marisa's method calls for placing the jars of yogurt in a small empty cooler to keep help keep their warmer temperature stable and draft-free. It's much easier to fit Mason jars in your small cooler than larger bowls of yogurt, so we're sold on this method.
