Science has shown that 'friendly' bacteria in yogurt actually helps humans to digest their food, improving nutrient and mineral (especially calcium) absorption, boosting the body's natural defences and fighting off harmful bacteria. Pat Crocker's new book, The Yogurt Bible, explores the science and the art of yogurt. With over 200 recipes, this book is for people who want to learn how to make their own yogurt. It's a book for yogurt lovers who want to incorporate it into the foods they love to cook and eat. It's a health book, a how-to book and a cookbook filled with original recipes by Pat.

Making yogurt at home is surprisingly easy, and the homemade version tastes so much better than store-bought! What's even better is that you can control almost all of the tastes and variations, from the sweetness to the thickness. And you decide on what ingredients to use, from organic cow's milk purchased from a farmers' market to ingredients found at your local grocer. The choice is yours.

You just need three key elements to get started: fresh milk, live bacterial culture and temperature. As far as equipment goes, all you need is a stainless steel saucepan, a thermometer and a constant heat source or electric yogurt maker.

For endless ways to enjoy and incorporate yogurt into your diet, The Yogurt Bible features 200 delicious recipes—more than 20 stand-alone yogurt recipes followed by recipes that feature yogurt as a main ingredient as well as topping recipes.

You'll find that making yogurt at home is so easy and satisfying that you'll begin to use it to replace other commercial and higher-fat items like sour cream, mayonnaise and cream cheese.

The book features the basic method for lower-fat milk, soy milk, cultured rice milk, nut milk, fruit milk and coconut milk yogurts along with recipes for:

  • French Vanilla Yogurt
  • Strawberry Yogurt
  • Chocolate Yogurt
  • Caramelized Pear and Onion Flatbread
