the Sunday Special - Yogurt Making

I recently discovered that my friend Meg makes her own YOGURT and decided to spend the afternoon with her to see how that process works.

Yogurt Recipe
1 3/4 gals of Organic Milk
1 cup plain organic starter yogurt

The Yogurt Making Process
Gradually heat the milk until it reaches about 200 degrees and bring just to a boil.
Fill the sink or a larger bowl/basin full of cool water and place the pot of milk into it to cool down to about 110 degrees.
Ladle about 1 cup of cooled milk into a bowl and add the cup of starter yogurt. Mix well so that no lumps remain.
Stir the starter mix into the pot of milk.
Ladle the mixture into canning jars and cover with lids.
Place jars into a dehydrator set to 117 degrees for about 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
Remove jars from the dehydrator and immediately transfer them to the refrigerator.
Let cool and enjoy :)
