I made yogurt yesterday.  Lyn did here, and I copied her.   It was super easy and the results were a great big YUM.

Just heat milk on low in the slow cooker for 2 1/2 hours.  Unplug it and let it sit for 3 more hours.  Do not open during this time.  The take out two cups and stir in 1/2 cup of plain yogurt, with live active cultures.   This can be store bough or homemade.  Return to slow cooker, replace lid and wrap in towels.  Wait another 8 hours, still unplugged.

I got some organic, whole milk at the grocery store for just under $4.  The container of yogurt was on sale for $1.  I scooped out 1/2 cup for the next batch, so I won't have that whopping expense next time!!!  It is a lot of yogurt for about $5.  It is also quite good.  It is a little thin, but not enough to bother me.

I added some strawberries from my uncle's garden to what I had for breakfast.  It was delicious.  Anyone that likes yogurt should try this.  There is nothing to it, other than waiting for time to pass.  Try it!

If anyone tries it post the results.  I want to know, but I fully expect another positive review.


  1. Totally agree that homemade is much tastier. I'd had a few failures, but Debby and helped me when she was here and our batch turned our delicious. I strained it to make it Greek Yogurt and it's better than anything I've ever bought. Also finding good uses for the very healthy whey left from the straining process.

  2. glad it was a success,i tried low fat biscuits with light mayo in stead of butter/lard and they were ICK! lolol not much of a yogurt person myself but i know peeps who are so i'll pass this on! xoxoxoxoxoxo

  3. I keep meaning to try to make it but haven't. maybe I will!
