  • Yogurt

    So it turns out yogurt does not bother me.... but only if I make it myself. I have found that if I make "early" yogurt - letting it ferment only 6-8 hours instead of overnight - I don't get a flare. This is a huge development for me, so I hope this will help other ICers who used to love yogurt. Yes, it's a pain to make it, but it ends up saving money and having less sugar in it, too. I'm including a link to my recipe/technique. Try including a little bit of heavy cream if you like it thicker. "Early" yogurt can come out a bit thin.
