I often tell people that we make our own yogurt, which makes my wife laugh, because it would be more accurate to say that she makes yogurt. Homemade yogurt is easy, fresh, very tasty, and inexpensive and there are lots of different ways to make it. We (my wife) started by making it in the oven but when we moved we discovered that most ovens won’t hold a steady enough low temperature to make yogurt. We now use a yogurt maker. My grandmother in Europe used to make yogurt by having seven plastic tubs on the window sill (one for each day of the week). Each day they would take one down and put a new one up. It took seven days for the yogurt to fully develop in the sun.
So, you can imagine I found it interesting when I came upon this recipe for making yogurt that involved using Revere Ware pots.
My revere ware pots are from the sixties. Some even got with green stamps.i have kept buying the older pots at thrift shops, tag sales,etc. I even bought a heavy pot at the factory store upstate New York. I upset constsntly. This pot weighs more than other pots. It’s a wonder for brazing meat, takes the high temperatures and Browns evenly.
I have oNe extra set of handles I picked up somewhere. I keep them safe. I now own three double boilers, four deep frying pans. And one pressure cooker. Lucky me!
