I made homemade yogurt last night. The Country Charm cast-iron stove turns out to be perfect -- you can set the oven to keep a temperature of 100 degrees F and then culture the yogurt overnight inside the oven. (The lowest temperature marking on the dial is 150, but it seems to be capable of doing temperatures much lower. So you turn it on until just barely past where the heating element goes on, and if you leave it there, you get around 98-102 degrees. I check it periodically to make sure it's holding steady.)
The cute little jars are from IKEA (as is the countertop, actually).
