How to Make Yogurt in Your Slow Cooker
In addition to homeschooling we also have a small farm (Triple - A - Farm). And on that farm we have some dairy goats...EEE II EEE II OO! haha So we get lots of fresh milk. After a while you start running out of room for said milk and get creative. Hence this recipe for Crockpot Yogurt!
- 1/2 gallon of milk either cow or goat
- 1 pkg of jello in favorite flavor (*see alternative below)
- 1/2 c. Yogurt starter like Dannon plain yogurt or you can also purchase starters at Culturesforhealth.com ( we like the non-dairy because we have family with an allergy to cow milk.)
In blender, mix starter and milk. Pour into crockpot and turn to warm setting. If you don't have the warm setting just use low but watch closely to avoid scorching milk.
After milk is heated to around 110 degrees mix in jello WELL!
Turn off crockpot and wrap with heavy towel to keep warm or pour into containers and place in a cooler of very hot water. Let set for 6-8 hrs. Then you will have yogurt!
Please Note: Homemade yogurt is not as thick as store bought yogurt.
