Homemade Yogurt

Rated as 4.24 out of 5 Stars

"This is a really inexpensive way to make lots of yogurt, and it's kind of cool to boot! It also offers and endless amount of possibilities of flavors for those watching sugars. After the first batch, you can use a tablespoon of your own homemade yogurt instead of store-bought."

  1. Pour 2 cups of water into a sealable 1 quart container, and stir in the yogurt until dissolved. Whisk in powdered milk until completely blended. Fill with remaining water, and stir. Close the lid, and set in a warm place for 12 to 15 hours. I use a gas oven (turned off), or even a heating pad. Refrigerate, until chilled before serving.

I tried using 4 cups of nonfat milk instead of the dry milk and water, and it turned out perfectly. I warmed up my oven a little, and then left the light on to keep it warm, left the mixture in...

Agree with Corrine and Sherry. Milk is the way to go. Powdered milk gives it a funny taste. I use skim milk, but whole and half and half is great if you don't mind the calories. I've a recip...

As a college student in Southern Utah I would make the yogurt, put it out in the sun and by the end of the day it was perfect(as long as the sun remained out all day) You can also add jam, vanil...

This was ok. The flavor was good but not amazing. Make sure not to stir it or it will separate and be runny.
