"Yogurt is a staple in Armenian cuisine. This authentic recipe for homemade yogurt has been passed down in my husband's family for many generations. I've updated the measurements and temperatures to ensure a successful recipe every time. It's fast, easy and economical! I always try to keep some on hand, but this recipe is so versatile and delicious, it's sometimes hard to keep up with the demand!" — sharoian

plain yogurt, preferably Greek-style, with live cultures
heavy whipping cream
My family has also been making (Armenian) yogurt for generations. I followed this recipe and it makes wonderfully thick and creamy yogurt! Instead of using towels around the bowl, I like to put the bowl in the unheated oven for the night (keep the oven OFF!). Also, although not Armenian in style, this is really good with a bit of honey and some lime zest mixed in.
