    1       c            Nonfat or lowfat milk
    3       tb           Unflavored yogurt (we used
                         Nonfat)
    1       c            All-purpose flour
 
   In a 1-quart pan over medium heat, heat milk to 90-100
   degrees. Remove from heat and stir in yogurt. Place in
   a warm 3 to 6 cup glass, ceramic, plastic or stainless
   steel container with a tight lid. Cover and let stand
   in a warm place until mixture is the consistency of
   yogurt and a curd has formed. (You can test the
   mixture by tilting the container. If the mixture
   doesn't flow freely when the container is tilted, it’s
   ready.) The curding process takes about 18 to 24
   hours. You'll need to check it periodically. If some
   clear liquid rises to the top of the milk, stir it
   back in. NOTE: If the liquid turns pink, discard the
   batch and start again. Once the curd has formed, add
   the flour and stir until smooth. Cover again and let
   stand in a warm place until the mixture is full of
   bubbles and has a good sour smell. This should take
   about 2 to 5 days. Again, if some clear liquid rises
   to the top stir it back in. If the liquid turns pink,
   discard the batch and start again. When the mixture is
   ready, you can keep it covered and store it in the
   refrigerator until you need it. The recipe makes about
   1 1/3 cup starter.
