More Yogurt

Homemade yogurt + homemade granola = YUM!!!!

PS- I made a second batch of yogurt, tweaking the recipe just a bit.

8 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 packet unflavored gelatin
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 c. powdered milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

1/2 c plain yogurt (I use Stonyfield Organic Whole Milk Cream on Top)

Preheat the crockpot on high. On the stovetop, combine milk, heavy cream, sugar, gelatin, dry milk, and vanilla in a large pot. Bring to 200 F, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Place pot in a sink filled with ice water, stir constantly until milk mixture is 115 F. Spoon out 2 cups, and whisk in plain yogurt. Add all to crockpot, unplug, and cover with bath towels for insulation. Let sit for 8 hours. Uncover and refrigerate.

It seems so easy! I love yogurt but the others merely like it occasionally and as such most of it would spoil. heavy sigh. So please, enjoy this wonderful recipe *for* me. :o)

I will have to try this, once I get over my fear that it will be awful. I know yours was wonderful, but I worry that mine would be a flop. I LOVE yogurt. I eat it plain and with cereal or granola. I also eat it with fruit or all fruit jam. SO GOOD. What size was your crockpot? I guess any size is fine as long as it holds the ingredients? Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

Gena,
My crockpot is 7 quarts, but I think it would work fine in any size.
