Yogurt In The Crockpot

I've been making my own yogurt for over a year now, using a small yogurt maker that I found at Goodwill.

I've often read about making yogurt in a warmish oven overnight and wanted to try it, mainly because I could make more than 1 quart at a time and also because I like to eliminate single purpose gadgets from my kitchen if at all possible.

Well, I hadn't gotten around to trying it in my oven but when I came across the Crockpot Lady's yogurt recipe, I just had to try it! You can make 2 quarts at a time(probably more if you wanted to) and it uses the crockpot which I already have.

This method of making yogurt is easy, easy too!

I tried it last week and sure enough, it worked! I was really nervous about whether or not the crockpot would be warm enough for the yogurt to culture, but it was!

I'll definitely be making yogurt in the crockpot again and again!

I've made this recipe for yogurt twice now and will be making another in the next couple of days. I love that it makes so much at once and is so much better for you and much less expensive than store-bought yogurt. I also love the Crockpot Lady. She has such great recipes.

Hi Mary Ann and Darcy Lee,

I really am happy to hear that this worked so well for you! I haven't been able to make it again since that first trial, so I'm overjoyed to hear that it does work, and isn't just a fluke. :-0

I look forward to making a bunch when next year hits.

this sounds very cool! i've never made yogurt, but have been interested. like you, i didn't want to add another single use gadget to my small kitchen.

thanks for the heads up.
