How To Make Yogurt (VIDEO)

The idea of making homemade Yogurt may look a bit complex but it is not as complex as it seems. All you need is a quality whole Milk and a starter of some kind.  In this recipe, I used two heaping tablespoons of plain Yogurt from a store-bought Yogurt as my starter.  Boil milk, cool, add yogurt, leave in the oven for a few hours and that is basically it!
