HOUSE-MADE YOGURT HOW-TO

Ever wonder how we make the house yogurt at our 14 Street Market? By the time you're done reading this post, you'll know. I challenge the more adventurous reader to try this at home. For the curious, but not so savvy, rest assured you can still pick up the finished product at the market to enjoy at home. Plus, starting this Friday we'll be offering a granola-yogurt bowl with berry compote to stay.

You'll need: 4L milk, 2L Cream, 1C of yogurt starter (saved from a previous batch or use a dollop of your favourite plain yogurt or sour cream).
