Make your own yogurt!

Happy New Year! 

Last night, I made yogurt! I decided to take you along for the ride! Enjoy the video! Questions and comments are welcome!

{Side Note: I originally learned how to make yogurt using this great blog post from Chickens in the Road}

Items I used in this video

Items I used in this video: 

1 Gallon Milk
1 1/2 C. Nonfat Dry Milk (Powdered Milk)
1 1/2 C. Sugar
1 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract
2 1/2 (roughly) Tbsp. Plain Greek Yogurt (with live/active cultures)

-For those of you who do not have a dehydrator-

The Kitchn has a wonderful how-to using your regular oven! 

Salad in a Jar has a list of more than 6 ways to incubate yogurt without using a yogurt maker!

The National Center for Home Food Preservation has some great information and tips.  Visit their site for more information!

So you might be wondering...what do you DO with all of that yogurt besides eating it as is.  Well, here are some ideas!

Overnight Oats
3 C. Yogurt
3 C. Rolled Oats
3 C. Milk
2 tsp. Cinnamon
22 oz. Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 C. Almonds or other nuts (optional)
2/3-3/4 C. Pure Maple Syrup 

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and refrigerate overnight.  Simple! 

Strawberry Yogurt
Add homemade strawberry freezer jam (other flavors will work, too!) to your yogurt.  Stir & enjoy!
