For those of you who eat yogurt virtually every morning like I do, the costs are likely adding up at the grocery store. And if you buy the small containers to take with you to work, the waste is also adding up. These are the two main reasons behind making your own yogurt at home. Easily.
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.
