Yogurt (This can be made in a larger batch using one gallon of milk and 2 tablespoons of yogurt.)
You will need
A crockpot, any size
A thermometer, Any type of kitchen thermometer works
A large towel
An oven with a light in it
2 C milk, any fat content (I used 1%)
1 t plain yogurt
A measuring cup
Place the crockpot on the 'high' setting. Add the milk and bring up to 190 degrees (F.) This took about 30 minutes in my crockpot. Keep an eye on it as this may be different in yours. Place the lid on. It will be longer if you make a larger batch.
Turn off the crockpot when the milk heats to 190 degrees (F.) Keep the lid on and allow the milk to cool to 110 degrees (F.) This took about 40 minutes for my milk to cool.
Remove about 3/4 C of the milk in a small bowl and mix the yogurt in it until it dissolves. Add this to the milk in the crockpot and gently stir it in.
Wrap the crockpot insert (lid on) in a large towel and place in the oven with the light on. Leave over night In the morning you will have delicious and pure yogurt. A very small amount (1/3 C) of separation may occur, you can drain it off and use it in a baking project if you like.
Place in the refrigerator for an hour to firm it up. Enjoy with fruit, nuts, honey, or what ever suits you. Yummo!
