How to make your own Greek yogurt
Until recently, plain yogurt has been a hard sell. Its naturally tart and tangy flavor was perceived as too sharp or too sour for most Americans. Greek yogurt, with its creamy and luxurious texture and milder flavor, is converting yogurt naysayers to yogurt lovers, and in the process has revolutionized how we think about yogurt. Greek yogurt is simply yogurt that has been strained. In the rest of the world, including Greece, it is called “strained” or “hung” yogurt, referring to the fact that it is traditionally hung in cloth to drain. You can make your own. You need a thermometer, a warm place, and patience.
