This recipe is a compilation of all the recipes that I received on Facebook, and from information I gleaned while looking around at other yogurt recipes. Feel free to play around with it, and make it work for your family. - The longer you let your yogurt sit on the heating pad, the tangier & thicker your yogurt will be.

- We found that using 2% gave a better texture yogurt than skim milk did.
- Once you have added fruit to the yogurt, it will stop it from setting up properly. It is best to add the fruit right before serving and just stir it in.
- Homemade yogurt will keep well in the fridge for about 7-10 days.
- When you want to make another batch of yogurt, you can use 1/2 cup of the last batch that you made as your starter. I have read that you can use your homemade yogurt as the starter about 5 times, and then it is best to use a new store bought yogurt as the starter.
