so I want to make this wonderful recipe of yours: <a href="http://www.kathysrecipebox.com/?p=136" target="_blank">http://www.kathysrecipebox.com/?p=136</a><br><br>
my mother bought me a coconut "maker" it is the large size. I'm not exactly sure how to do this (I have the starter)--do I still have to warm up everything in a saucepan and take the temperature and THEN stick it in the yogurt maker? will this recipe work in a yogurt maker? I am excited and would love to get this yogurt into my kids' diet. any tips are very much appreciated--thanks!

A yogourt maker, from what I understand, is basically just an easy method of incubating the yogourt (maintaining it at a consistent temperature while the bacteria breeds and feeds on the sugars).<br>
Looking at Kathy's recipe, I would guess that the first step- in the saucepan- is intended to thicken the yogourt with the tapioca starch. I would also be certain that you do allow the coconut milk to cool to 90F as she states in her instructions as higher temperatures may kill your starter.

Yup. I use a yogurt maker (incubator) for mine. And Jacqueline is right on all counts (even if her family can't have coconut).<br><br>
Everyone stop putting my name in thread titles. It's embarrassing me. And don't worry, I read practically every thread, so I don't need a reminder.
