The Great Crockpot Yogurt Saga

1 day, as the earth rotated and balanced, and the birds did, Lola passed around a link to a Crockpot Yogurt recipe. I had been fascinated enough to say “Hey! I need to make that! ” I despise how exorbitantly expensive just plain old yogurt is so I thought this could be a great economical approach to always having yogurt around. how long can yogurt sit out

My first batch been found great. I shared my success with Vicky and was eaten. It was as thick as a normal tub of Fat No cost pre-assembled yogurt but I actually wanted my second set to be a little thicker without having to do anything special like straining through cheesecloth or adding gelatin.

Below is the process I used exactly for this second batch. Mixed a little more powdered milk in this one. Tasted superb and thickened beautifully. Merely perfect!

1 large crockpot with at least a low setting
3 quarts of milk, 2%
3/4 cup of excess fat free yogurt as a starter
1/4 cups of powdered dry milk (helps it thicken)
2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
one particular teaspoon of honey
2 large THICK cotton quilts or bath sheets. 

you. Turn slow cooker on LOW. Pour all 3 quarts of milk into crock pot. Cover with lid. Cook on the lower setting for 2. 5 hours.

2. After installation payments on your 5 hours, UNPLUG the crockpot. Let it sit, with the lid on, for 3. 5 hours.

3. At the end of 3. 5 hours, details approximately 2. 5 mugs of the hot dairy out of the crockpot, and pour into a tiny plastic bowl.

4. With a whisk, gently mix in 3/4 of the glass of fat free natural yoghurts, 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract, 1/4 cups of dry milk powder and a teaspoon of darling.

5. After mixing that for approximately 30 secs, add it back into the crockpot and mixture the mixture together for another 30 seconds.

six. Place the lid back on.? Spread first blanket or towel on counter or table where yogurt can sit UNDISTURBED for dokuz hours. CAREFULLY lift and place ENTIRE crockpot in middle of the share blanket or towel. Popular milk splashes so please be aware. Wrap it up like a tender little package. Then do again with the second solid cotton blanket or hand towel. Check the time and let it take dokuz hours.


several. When 9 hours has passed, carefully unwrap the package, and lift the lid. If you take a spoonful, it should behave just like you see in the video here. Have the crockpot portion (ofcourse not the base) and put it in the refrigerator if you have the room, and enable it continue chilling.

A definite “liquid” should rise to the top as you usually get in yogurt containers. A lot of people like to blend this into the natural yoghurts and eat it. We like to drain mine off for thicker natural yoghurts. You can soak it up with a clean paper towel if you would like.

Otherwise, after it chills, you are all done! Divvy up into separate containers for storing and eating.
