I didn’t want to post this one until I was sure that it worked. It does and it’s really good, too! I am now sure that you can make ANYTHING in the crock pot!!! It takes most of the day to make it, but is so easy and totally worth it!
First put 8 cups of cold whole milk in your crock pot. Turn it on low and let cook for 2 1/2 hours.
Then remove 2 cups of the warm milk and place in a bowl. Whisk in 1/2 cup of plain yogurt with active cultures into the 2 cups of milk in the bowl. You can also whisk in an envelope of unflavored gelatin to make it thicker. (I’ve also heard that 1/2 cup of powdered milk with work to thicken it.)
Stir the “starter” back into the remaining milk in the crock pot.
Flavor the yogurt with fresh fruit, honey or jam (that’s our favorite!). It’s also great with homemade granola or muesli!
