  1. This sounds so easy! I have been wondering how difficult making one’s own yogurt was because I go through a container in about a week and am either torn about keeping the (non-recyclable) plastic container of which I have many or throwing it out. Thank you!

    How long does the yogurt stay good?

  2. No problem, Melissa! Yogurt usually stays good for about 1-3 weeks.

    As for the non-recyclable containers, you can use them to start seedlings. I do that as well as keep leftover food and homemade cleaning supplies in them.
