Iris' notes for this recipe:
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.
Make it Your Way...

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).
