Homemade Yogurt Recipe
I got this recipe from my friend Tannen. I think it’s best when made with raw milk, but you can also use store-bought whole milk. This recipe does require a “starter” (a little bit of yogurt), but in the end it saves you money if you’re a big yogurt eating family!
Makes 1 gallon yogurt
1 gallon milk
1 cup plain yogurt
Directions: Pour milk into slow-cooker and cook on high for 3.5 hours. Turn off and let cool 3 hours. Take one cup of the warm milk out and mix with 1 cup plain yogurt. Add back in to rest of milk. Stir. Wrap crockpot with blanket or towel and let sit out 8-12 hours. Refrigerate and enjoy!
Notes: Yogurt will thicken in fridge. We like to top our yogurt with granola or fruit. You can also add some honey or maple syrup if you like yours a little sweeter. The consistency is more runny than store bought yogurt. You can also make a breakfast drink, smoothie, or popsicles out of it! Lots of options!
