Yogurt – this is soo easy!

4 cups milk, plus 1/2 cup non-fat powdered milk
2 tablespoons plain store bought yogurt

Let the store bought yogurt sit at room temperature while –
warm the milk to 180 degrees and let cool to 110 degrees. Stir frequently while warming so it doesn’t scorch.
Stir a little of the 110 degree milk into the store bought yogurt, and then add that mix to the rest of the milk.
Set in a bowl, cover with a towel, and place in a warm spot undisturbed for 12 hours. Chill.

This recipe will make 1 quart of yogurt, I keep it in an old large yogurt container, it fits perfect.

I like to make my yogurt at 8pm, set it in the gas oven and take it out at 8am.

You can make yogurt with all non-fat powdered milk, but it may be thin. You can do this to thicken it up a bit:
Pour yogurt into a plain, clean, flour sack type towel and strain it for awhile over a large bowl. This will take out the excess moisture. Also, if you let it strain for a longer time, you have yogurt cheese, which is like cream cheese.

The yogurt you have made is plain, unsweetened yogurt. You can keep 2 tablespoons aside (frozen) for your next batch, but everything I read said to get some fresh store bought every few recipes. You can add some sweetening and vanilla to it if you like. Add fruits and/or granola and enjoy!
