You'll find no shortage of yogurt brands on supermarket shelves these days. Still, as far as we're concerned, nothing beats homemade; doing it yourself allows you to make creamy, fresh-tasting yogurt that's exactly as tart as you like. Electric makers are easy to use, but the process is simple even without one. You'll need a bit of yogurt with live active cultures (bacteria that kick off fermentation) to use as your starter and a warm oven to provide the right conditions for bacteria activation. —Kellie Evans This recipe first appeared in our March 2014 issue.
