Crock Pot YogurtToday I am making some crockpot yogurt. Normally I pull out the big crockpot and make a large batch but today I am making a smaller one because I am going to try making some in the dehydrator later this week. This yogurt is so yummy with a tablespoon of homemade strawberry jam on top or some fresh berries.
For this recipe, you will need:
1 gallon milk
1/2 cup to 1 cup yogurt (this can be store brand or a bit saved from your last batch)
1 cup dry milk (optional)
1 TBL vanilla (optional)
You will also need a crockpot, a thermometer, a small bowl, and spoon for mixing.
Pour the milk into the crockpot and set it to low. Let it sit for about 2-3 hours. Unplug.
Let it cool to about 95-110 degrees. This will take about 2 hours.
Take 1 cup of the milk out and put it in your bowl. Mix in your yogurt well.
Pour this mixture back into the crockpot and add your optional ingredients, if you choose.
Put the lid on and cover the crock pot with a large towel or blanket to keep the heat in and leave it to sit. This should take between 4 hours to overnight. I usually leave it overnight. Make sure your crockpot is not plugged in.
After it has thickened, store in the refrigerator.
