I recently made some yogurt in my crockpot. All you need is 1/2 gallon of milk and a small container of plain yogurt. It is very easy, here's how.
Pour 1/2 gallon milk (I used skim) in your crockpot and cook on low for 2 1/2 hours.
Turn off crockpot and let the milk sit for another 3 hours.
Temper the yogurt with one cup of the heated milk and add it back into the crockpot.
Cover the whole thing with towels or blankets to keep in the heat and allow to sit for 8 to 10 hours.
The end result is runnier than store-bought yogurt but that can be fixed by draining some of the whey off. So far I've made blueberry using some blueberry syrup, 2 TBS to a 1/2 cup yogurt, and I've made vanilla using 3 drops vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp Truvia.
I love the fresh taste and I can't wait to see what other flavors I can come up with.
