My First Homemade Yogurt
So, one of the things I am trying to eat more of is yogurt. There is very little of it that I actually like from the grocery store... correction make that none, but I do like Atlanta Fresh yogurt. The only problem with that is that in addition to being quite expensive, it is also largely unavailable without a pretty long drive from where I live. So, while there is yogurt I like at grocery stores, there is none I like at the grocery store in my town. Making yogurt is something I have wanted to try for a long time to try to get better tasting yogurt that is readily available and less expensive, and I also have this crazy DIY need to try to make things that other people buy ready made. So, when I saw this recipe for making yogurt in the crock pot on Pinterest, I knew I had to try it. The original recipe can be found at the wonderful blog The Girls Guide to Guns and Butter. I changed the recipe a bit to use homogenized organic one percent milk. I am trying to stay pretty low fat and raw milk is not available here legally. I wish it had been a bit thicker, but I think the lower fat prevented that. The best part is that I loved the taste! Now I can have really good yogurt without having to travel out of my small town!
