Carol Sue, you don't need to fill all jar spaces in your yogurt maker. And you can make the whole batch and use some of the jars for veggie dips, add to soups, use for a fruit salad base, all kinds of options. My yogurts keep for a long time and I'm the only one that eats it at my house. Bruce eats it too but doesn't know he's eating it when I sneak it into recipes. You can even add a jar to your fruit smoothies at lunch time. Use your imagination and you'll find lots of ways to use it up.
