Yogurt made using your oven Yogurt made using your oven
Number of Servings: 18


    8 cups skim milk
    1 cup nonfat dry milk
    1 cup ALL NATURAL PLAIN YOGURT (with live active cultures) This is the starter


You will need a candy thermometer

Preheat oven at lowest temp. turn off and turn the oven LIGHT on (this will maintain an oven temp of 110.

Combine the milk & powdered milk together, heat until it reaches a temp. of 170-200 degrees Fahrenheit, I have had luck heating mine in the microwave for 20 minutes. Remove milk from heat and allow to cool to 105-115 degrees Fahrenheit. If necessary skim off milk film. Stir in 8 OZ plain yogurt into a small amount of heated milk until the yogurt is dissolved and you have a smooth mixture. Mix the room temperature milk very well with the smooth mixture. Pour the mixture into a crock, Corning Ware or glass type container. Place mixture in oven without a lid (this will make a thicker yogurt) for 10-12 hours. DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN or JIGGLE the mixture for at least 10 hours. The oven process differs depending on one’s oven, my yogurt is ready at the 10.5-11th hour. Place oven yogurt in refrigerator. Allow the yogurt to cool for at least 3-4 hours BEFORE serving.

Makes: Eighteen 1/2 cup servings

    I don't use the dry milk in mine and the yogurt still turns out quite thick. I put the yogurt in to pint-size jars right away, before putting them in the oven. I haven't bought commercial yogurt for months this is all we will eat anymore. It's awesome if you add fruit to it as you use it. - 1/25/13
