Homemade yoghurt

I use a crock pot - slow cooker.

6 pints of whole milk. Heat in slow cooker until 180F

cool to 110F

add half a cup of decent plain yoghurt (the kind with helpful bacteria)

remove the pot from the heater, put towel over the lid and place in the oven with oven light on for 16 hours.

that's it - great sugar free, additive free yoghurt.

I do similar. I do 2 litres at a time, then strain it afterwards. Strain a bit for greek-style yogurt, strain a lot for yogurt "cheese" (keep the whey for lots of different things!). I'm not high-tech or anything though with temps, I just turn my crock on at 4 p.m., turn it off at 7, check it around 9:30, maybe turn crock back on for 5-10 min, add seeding/starter yogurt, unplug and wrap in a towel or two. When I get up with the kids in the morning... voila, yogurt! I try to use the organic milk when it's on clearance.

And you know what's better for you than homemade yoghurt?

Homemade saurkraut!

Yah, I know! I remember my grandmother always having some stewing in a crock growing up. Yum! It's on my "to do" list, I'm told it's ridiculously easy.

Now I'm craving sausage and kraut.
