My oven has a pilot light, and is always warm. This morning, for reasons other than making yogurt, I stuck an oven thermometer in the oven, and although the thermometer doesn't measure that low, the temp peels like it may be about right for making yogurt. Anyway, the point is thatyou may be able to use your oven instead of a yogurt maker.
Alton Brown did a show recently in which he made yogurt using a heating pad for the heat siurce - we all know how much he hates uni-taskers <LOL>.
Mike, the TJ's Greek style yogurt is a very good alternative, considering the value, to the Fage, but sometimes having the "original" is required. TJ's has a relatively recent addition to their yogurt lineup - Mediterrannean Style Yogurt - like a labneh. VERY
good, imo. http://www.cheftalk.com/forums/food-...ader-joes.html
