Homemade whole milk yogurt

Submitted by: NATBAER

Introduction

A versatlie yogurt recipe. I make it without any extras because it is so easy to flavor later. Left plain, it makes a great sour cream substititue. Add a little honey and dried cherries for a yummy breakfast or snack. One recipe makes 4 1-cup servings. A versatlie yogurt recipe. I make it without any extras because it is so easy to flavor later.

Ingredients

    1 qt. whole milk
    1/4 c plain yogurt (necessary for incubation) or you can use leftover homemade yogurt.

Directions

Pour milk into heavy saucepan. Heat to 180 degrees over med heat. (I use a candy thermometer to measure this) If you don't have a candy thermometer, heat milk until bubbles form around the edges, but it is not boiling. You should be able to keep your finger in it for 20 seconds. Remove from heat and let cool to 115 degrees. The milk must cool... or it will kill the bacteria in the yogurt. While the milk is cooling, heat your oven to 350 degrees, then turn off. Add a little of the cooled milk to the yogurt in a small bowl and stir until smooth. Add this mixture back to the milk and stir to fully incorporate. Cover the mixture and put it in the oven for at least 8 hours, or overnight. I leave my oven light on because you want the yogurt to stay in a warm place (90 degrees or so) to fully incubate. When it is done you can drain of the whey to make it a thicker yogurt, or squeeze it in cheese cloth and let it drain for a few hours to make yogurt cheese.
