Homemade Yogurt

No yogurt maker needed for this version. Started on the stove top, then finished in an oven warmed only by the pilot light. The result has a tender texture and a very mild flavor, just the way I like my yogurt. I found the instructions on Wikihow.com.

1 quart milk (any kind)
1/4 cup yogurt, plain, unflavored, room-temperature
1/4 cup dry milk powder
1 tablespoon white sugar
pinch of salt
candy thermometer

yogurt 1

In a double boiler, heat milk to 185°F
then cool milk to 110°F (I do this in a water bath)
whisk in dry milk powder
whisk in sugar and salt
whisk in room-temperature yogurt

Pour into clean containers
cover well with lid or plastic wrap
then place containers in a gas oven, warmed by the pilot light for 7 hours

Makes just over a quart of yogurt

For those who don’t have a gas oven, the optimal temp is 100°F.

#nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook Once a year I get to use my #enamal platter. Perfect for a #smallbatch Thanksgiving #audreycancook #persimmons are plentiful this time of year. 'What to do with them?' is always the question.
