There are several ways of making home made yogurt and this one is all about easy and tasty! This sweet pear compote topped with a creamy vanilla yogurt will brighten up any difficult morning! While this yogurt only requires 15-20 minutes of active kitchen time, it needs to sit for around 10 hours in a yogurt maker to allow it to culture and turn into creamy yogurt. So do all the prep work before going off to bed and leave it out all night while you sleep. When you wake up, you have yogurt!
