1 qt Milk (2%), homogenized
4 ts Yogurt,plain
4 ts Sugar, optional
Heat the milk in a saucepan until lukewarm; if the milk is too hot at
this point, it will destroy the culture and the mix will set. Put the
yogurt in the crockpot and stir in the sugar and milk thoroughly.
Cover with a clean dish towel (do *not* cover pot). Heat on low 1
hr. then turn off the pot and leave undisturbed for 2 hours. The
yogurt should now be just set. Lift the pot from base, cool then
refrigerate. Flavorings should be added after yogurt has set.
Flavorings such as powdered coffee (2-3 t.), powdered milk drink
flavorings (2-3 t.), cocoa, chopped fruit, honey, vanilla extract (1
t.), and various types of extract can be used (try 1 t. to 1 qt. of
yogurt) can be used. **This can only be made in a crockpot that can
be removed from base. Yogurt doesn't like to be disturbed when
setting. Try draining 1 pt. of the set yogurt overnight in
cheesecloth. You end up with "Syrian cream cheese". You use it
(cold) the way you use regular cream cheese.
