Crockpot Yogurt by Foxy67



Introduction

based on a 6 oz serving based on a 6 oz serving
Number of Servings: 17

Ingredients

    8 Cups (half- gallon) Milk - pasteruized and homogenized is fine, but no not use ultra-pasteurized.
    1/2 Cup Plain Yogurt with live/active culture (you need to have a starter. Once you have made your own, you can use that as a starter)
    Thick Bath Towel
    1/4 C vanilla extract
    *1 envelope gelatin (I added since I used 1% milk to make it thicker)

Directions

This takes a while. Make your yogurt on a weekend day when you are home to monitor.

I used a 4 quart crockpot. This is so exciting. My fingers are shaking!

Plug in your crockpot and turn to low. Add an entire half gallon of milk. Cover and cook on low for 2 1/2 hours.

Unplug your crockpot. Leave the cover on, and let it sit for 3 hours.

When 3 hours have passed, scoop out 2 cups of the warmish milk and put it in a bowl. Whisk in 1/2 cup of store-bought live/active culture yogurt. Then dump the bowl contents back into the crockpot. Stir to combine.

Put the lid back on your crockpot. Keep it unplugged, and wrap a heavy bath towel all the way around the crock for insulation.


Go to bed, or let it sit for 8 hours.

In the morning, the yogurt will have thickened---it's not as thick as store-bought yogurt, but has the consistency of low-fat plain yogurt.

Blend in batches with your favorite fruit. I did mango, strawberry, and blueberry. When you blend in the fruit, bubbles will form and might bother you. They aren't a big deal, and will settle eventually.

Chill in a plastic container(s) in the refrigerator. Your fresh yogurt will last 7-10 days. Save 1/2 cup as a starter to make a new batch.

Add fruit or flavoring to your taste.
