Wicked Easy Yogurt – day 4

This recipe comes from one of my co-workers. I will make it again for sure!

Supplies needed: 1 gallon of milk, 1 small plain Greek yogurt, cheesecloth (a fine strainer may do the trick)

  • Pour milk in pot and heat to 190 degrees, whisk as heating.
  • Cool to 120 degrees (I place the pot in a larger bowl with cool water running into the bowl until it reached temperature)
  • Add yogurt
  • Place in a container, then I put it in one of the kids insulated lunch boxes. My friend says she uses a cold/hot bag
  • Place it in the oven overnight
  • In the morning pour onto cheesecloth and let drain 2-4 hours
  • Stir & refrigerate.

I typically do not care for plain yogurt but I liked this. Just had to add some granola to spice it up a bit. Next time around I may try to flavor it. Anyone have any experience with this? I could use a little direction. I am also curious as to how long it is good for?
