Seal the jar and wrap it with a heating pad and then with a towel. Let it stay like this with a heating pad turned on for 10 hours. Then, remove the heating pad, and let the jar stay in the fridge for a whole night.
Your homemade yogurt is now ready to be consumed. For a different flavor, you can add some fruits or spices. Avoid cow’s milk when preparing homemade yogurt because the best one is that prepared from goat milk.
