Default Yogurt recipe

For those of you, Renee, who like to feed their dogs yogurt I think this website is great. I knew, of course, that it was easy to make yogurt but have never done it and this page is very helpful.

I used to make my own yogurt. I found a yogurt making set-up at a junk store for $2.00. It really is a "load-it-and-leave-it" operation.

Oooooh!! I'll bet you could make some great tasting yogurt with that Promised Land milk. They have the best chocolate, vanilla, peach and strawberry and it's 100% organic Jersey milk.

I think I'll make just vanilla. That sounds easier than getting all the other stuff. Was it easy to make once you got the hang of it?
I think once you have the ingredients it's pretty cheap.

It's been awhile, but it was very easy. I just made plain yogurt, then added whatever I wanted when I ate it. I even used it in place of sour cream.

I think that's great. Doesn't have preservatives and crap in it. I'm going to try it.

I found another link that's even easier: http://homecooking.about.com/library...e/bldairy9.htm

Even has a method for making it in a thermos. Do you mind looking at it Renee, and seeing if there's anything to add. I'd do the oven method I think but it just looks too easy compared to the other sites I've been at.

For some reason all I got was a blank title page, so I did a look-up on Mother Earth News and came up with the utmost in simplicity. http://www.motherearthnews.com/article/2153/

I've even had people tell me they made yogurt by nestling their containers in a heating pad on low or with a hot water bottle.

It wasn't horribly long so: (your link is great too! I think I'll accumulate knowledge from many sources before I begin)

Making Yogurt Without a Yogurt Maker

Instructions
Here are Phyllis Hobson's techniques for making yogurt if you do not have an appliance designed for it.

With a thermos
Almost fill a thermos bottle (preferably widemouthed) with milk heated to 100 degrees F. Add 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt and mix thoroughly. Put the lid on and wrap the thermos in two or three terry towels. Set it in a warm, draft-free place overnight.

In an oven
Pour 1 quart of milk into a casserole dish and add 3 tablespoons of plain yogurt. Stir well and cover the casserole. Place in a warm (100 degree F.) oven with the heat off. Let it sit overnight.

On a heating pad
Mix 1 quart of milk and 3 tablespoons of plain yogurt. Set an electric heating pad at medium temperature and place in the bottom of a cardboard box with a lid. (A large shoebox works well.) Fill small plastic containers with the milk-yogurt mixture; put on the lids. Wrap a heating pad around the containers, then cover with towels to fill the box and let sit, undisturbed, for 5 to 6 hours.

In the sun
Pour 1 quart warmed milk into a glass-lidded bowl or casserole. Add 3 tablespoons plain yogurt and cover with the glass lid or a clear glass pie pan. Place in the sun on a warm (not too hot) summer day and let sit 4 to 5 hours. Watch it to make sure it is not shaded as the sun moves.

On the back of a wood-stove
Many grandmothers made clabber by setting a bowl of freshly drawn milk on the back of the stove after supper. Make yogurt this way by adding 1 cup starter to 2 quarts milk and let it sit, loosely covered with a dish towel, on the back of the cooling wood range overnight.

In a Crock-Pot
Preheat a Crock-Pot on low for about 15 minutes, until it feels very warm to the fingertips. Put covered containers of yogurt mixture into the Crock-Pot, cover it, and turn off the heat. At 35- to 45-minutes intervals, heat the Crock-Pot on low for 10 to 15 minutes.

If you're not acquainted with Mother Earth News I am so pleased to introduce you to it! Wonderful source for all kinds of things.

It looks great. All things with "mother earth" hook me in. I'll browse around there more.
