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.

Directions

1
Preheat oven to 275 F. Dissolve gelatin in hot water. Stir until thoroughly dissolved.
2
Add the sugar and COOL to 110 F.
3
Mix in the remaining ingredients in the order given. Stir well. Place in a covered bowl.
4
Place bowl in the preheated oven, close door and TURN OFF the oven. Leave 8 to 10 hours, then refrigerate your fresh yogurt!
5
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).
