Homemade yogurt Some info here, Home Joys: Make It Yourself - Yogurt For a quart of yogurt, you need: 1 quart of milk 1/2 cup dry milk powder (not absolutely necessary but makes it thicker) 1/4 - 1/2 cup yogurt starter (plain - not vanilla - yogurt) room temperature To Make: Mix the milk and dry milk powder well. Heat on the stove to 180 degrees (almost boiling) You can use a double boiler but I don't bother. When heated, take off stove and cool milk to 115 degrees (baby bath water temperature) To cool faster put pot in a pan of cold water. When cool, add a small amount of your milk to your yogurt starter and whisk well. Add all milk and whisk well. Pour milk into a quart jar and cover. Incubate for 6 to 8 hours. Refrigerate. Serve! FYI- Some of these people are “incubating” in very expensive yogurt machines which totally is unnecessary. -- I pretty much use the above recipe but I double it using 1 C of starter then my twist is that I slop it all in a covered casserole dish then into my oven at 115° for about 8 hours and it’s done. The one thing I’d suggest would be using a candy thermometer the 1st few times until you get it down pat to where you know when the milk is about to boil. Go beyond that and it’ll boil out of your pot in the blink of an eye and all over your stove. Big sticky mess. I flavor our yogurt with 2 T vanilla and somewhere around ¼ C honey. Set some unflavored yogurt aside to use as starter the next time. Store the starter in your frig.
