  3. Mix the remaining milk with the yogurt in a small bowl then add it to the warm milk.
  4. Cover the milk with a clean dishtowel and place in a dry warm location such as the oven for 8 to 10 hours or until the milk has thickened enough to pull away from the sides of the bowl. Note: Do not refrigerate
