Yogurt Making 101
A friend recently shared with me how much she enjoys making homemade yogurt every week. Her encouragement got me to wondering if I could make yogurt at home in my slow cooker. I stumbled across this link which gives the incredibly easy instructions for making yogurt in a crockpot. I adapted this recipe simply by setting my slow cooker to between the 2nd and 3rd heat levels. The yogurt came out great - how cool is that?! The yogurt is thinner than store bought but works just fine for our smoothie breakfasts. If you want it thicker, you can add a packet of Knox gelatin to the mix to thicken it (scroll down further into her post and you'll see that mentioned). Enjoy!
