added fat free skim milk powder to previous recipe, and used skim instead of 1% milk. Each serving 1 3/4 cups, which leaves enough for starter for the next batch.

Recipe Ingredients for Marg's homemade vanilla yogurt, version 2

16 cups skim milk (1 gallon)
1/4 cup Carnation fat free skim milk powder (really 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup splenda
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup plain yogurt, fat free, organic

Recipe Directions for Marg's homemade vanilla yogurt, version 2

  1. Preheat oven to 100-110.

  2. Put a 1-gallon dutch oven on a heat diffuser in a large frypan and fill the frypan with water. Bring water to boil.

  3. Insert a thermometer and heat the milk, stirring occasionally, until the thermometer reads 170-180.

  4. Remove dutch oven from heat, cover, and let stand 10 minutes.

  5. Uncover and let temperature drop to 150. Stir in splenda until dissolved and stir in vanilla.

  6. Turn off oven but don't open door. Turn oven light on.

  7. Let milk mix temperature drop to 130. Add a few ladles of the milk to the yogurt to prevent curdling, then stir the yogurt into the milk mixture.

  8. Cover dutch oven, wrap in a towel, and set inside oven.

  9. Let this sit overnight, although you can check it after 3-4 hours by gently touching the surface with a spoon. If it is firm, or if it is solid but has a bit of clear, yellowish liquid on the surface, it is done. If not, check in another hour. Leaving it too long may make it sour--***test this step to see if overnight is fine, or what.

  10. Then put in plastic container and refrigerate at least 4-6 hours (it isn't really done until it is chilled).

  11. Remember to save a cup to act as seeder for next batch (ideally plain is best, but see if the flavored stuff works).
