DIY and Economical Greek Yogurt

No need to spend lots of money on fancy-pants "Greek" yogurt. Here's how to create the same creamy thick yogurt for significantly le$$ money from whatever plain yogurt happens to be on sale. I also use this for dips and any other recipe calling for sour cream.

You'll need:
  • 32-ounce container of yogurt
  • small mesh sieve
  • container for the sieve

Put sieve on container and fill with yogurt.

Let moisture (whey) drip out. Empty
container as needed until yogurt
reaches thickness you want.

When whey is removed, yogurt
will shrink. Dump whey and enjoy
 your low-cost "Greek" yogurt!

Read this at first as "Ecumenical Greek Yogurt." Future post?
