- 1/2 cup yoghurt with live bacteria with large, viable quantities (Lactobacillus acidophilus, bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus casei) or a yoghurt starter of your own.
- (optional) 1/2 cup natural, preservative/additive free cream (the fatter the better)

- Heat the milk and cream slowly in a saucepan until it reaches 82-93°C or 180-200°F.
- Turn the heat off and let the milk cool until it reaches 43-46°C or 110-115°F.
- Scoop out half a cup of warm milk mixture and put it into a bowl. Mix the yoghurt into the warm milk.
- Pour the yoghurt/milk mix back into the pot.
- Put the lid on and cover with a tea towel to try to maintain the temperature.
- Put in an oven with the light on. Leave overnight and it will be ready in the morning.
- To make thick Greek yoghurt: Line a colander with a tea-towel and pour the yoghurt into it.
- Tie together the corners of the towel and suspend, or just leave to sit and strain.
- Strain out the whey for 1-2 hours. Any longer and it will become cream cheese.
- Put in a jar and enjoy. Give it a good stir in case there are any lumps. My yoghurt usually lasts a couple of weeks - if it gets to last this long!
