She says she gets much better (thicker) results making it in the individual jars rather than one big batch.
I am going to try it this way. I realized whatever I made, was UBER UBER thick, like exact consistency of greek style. I did strain it, but in the past it would be thick then sorta runnier when stirred, this didn't do that at all. We ate it Sun night with fruit and honey, ehhh... Then the rest went to smoothies today, I just couldn't throw it away but waan't gonna try to eat it like Sunday
