Good recipe for homemade yogurt made without any "fancy" equipment. It's very tasty and you can flavor it any way you like! You could add a fresh strawberry puree and granola! I've made this several times. Its as easy as it looks.

NOTE: The "Cook" time is actually the "incubation period" while the yogurt cultures grow in the milk mixture overnight.

1 tsp
gelatin, unflavored (knox), dry
1/2 c
hot water
1 Tbsp
2 or 3 c
powdered milk, dry
3 c
water, cold
1 - 13 oz can(s)
evaporated milk, undiluted
3 Tbsp
plain yogurt, with active yogurt cultures

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 275 F. Dissolve gelatin in hot water. Stir until thoroughly dissolved.
Add the sugar and COOL to 110 F.
Mix in the remaining ingredients in the order given. Stir well. Place in a covered bowl.
Place bowl in the preheated oven, close door and TURN OFF the oven. Leave 8 to 10 hours, then refrigerate your fresh yogurt!
You can flavor your yogurt any way you like! One idea would be a fresh strawberry puree and honey or stevia! Granola is also great with yogurt! Use the yogurt in dips (like you would use sour cream).

I started my yogurt the next morning and put it in the oven as directed for 10 hours. I did make a mistake thought Iris as should have put my 1/2 cup hot water in a cup and made sure I mixed it until dissolved, and instead I put it in a pan and don't think I mixed it until dissolved enough. Lesson learned. It didn't set completely up but have it in refrigerator and seems to be setting up a little more. Put it on some strawberries and tasted great. Will make it again and this well be my keeper. Thanks so much for this great recipe and next time I'll be more careful,and hope will be able to put a picture on here. :)
