Making Homemade yogurt is not a difficult process and can be done at home. You can make it in the microwave or on the stove top . All you need to do is take a microwave safe dish or for the stovetop a heat resistant glass or stainless steel container.

Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Yogurt

2 quart Milk, Nonfat, Fluid
2 oz Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt

Recipe Directions for Homemade Yogurt

  1. Heat the milk until it starts to foam, (about 180F if you are using a thermometer) then remove from the heat and let it cool to touch, (approximately 105F). Stir in the tablespoon or two of yogurt, stir it up real good, and let it sit 7 - 8 hours keeping it at 105F. If your house is cool you can put this into the oven with the light on. That is enough heat to let the bacteria grow. For a thicker yogurt at this point all you have to do is boil the milk for a longer time and the water will steam out of it, making your yogurt thicker. When Gaytherie made this for us she used fresh milk from the dairy farm that is not pasteurized. She cooked it in the microwave for about 20 minutes then let it cool to room temperature.

  2. You can do this just before bed and it will be done in the morning. Once it?s cooled you can eat it, or use it in your favorite recipe. It will keep well in the refrigerator for a few days. After that it becomes sour but it is not bad. Simply sour. This can be used as a cheese or sour cream for many different savory dishes. If you like a thicker yogurt, you can put it in a strainer with ordinary coffee filter paper. The clear, slightly yellow liquid that drips from the filter is whey. If you prefer not to thicken your yogurt in this way then simply stir any whey that separates from your yogurt back in. This is a very good yogurt.

  3. To make your next batch, you can use some of your homemade yogurt as a starter. I?ve read that it?s not possible to do this too much because with each batch your yogurt culture becomes less tasty, however, the yogurt Gaytherie used as a starter has been on her family for 100 years. It was the tastiest yogurt I?ve ever had. If you prefer, you can use a fresh container of store bought yogurt to start each batch.

  4. If you are doing this I would suggest using the 4 oz containers of Greek yogurt, but you can use any kind. There is also yogurt starter cultures you can buy.
