I’ve been meaning to try my hand at making yogourt for a while. I loved the yogourt my mom used to make for me when I was a kid, and the way I eat it, yogourt has become a rather expensive habit.

My first foray into yogourt making was a smashing success thanks to Farida’s easy-to-follow recipe, which I found at her blog, AZ Cookbook: Food from Azerbaijan & Beyond.

I’m happy to report that my yogourt tastes exactly as delicious as the yogourt I used as starter, and, whereas the starter cost me $3.50/litre, my yogourt came to just $1.50/litre.

If you’ve been thinking of giving this a try yourself, go for it—it’s easy, delectable and cheap!
