Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Pour the gallon of milk into a stainless steel pot. Let it come to a slow boil without burning.
  2. Just as the milk starts to boil and foam up, remove it from the burner.
  3. When the milk cools to luke warm temperature. Warm to the touch..stir in the yogurt.
  4. Wrap the lid of the pot in a cotton dish cloth and place it tightly on the pot. Wrap the entire pot with several towels.
  5. Place the wrapped pot in a dark closet and cover with a blanket for 24 hours
  6. In 24 hours, unwrap the pot and put it in the refrigerator to chill. I sometimes like to pour off the water once it chills. The water is full of yogurt cultures and bacteria so don’t throw it away! Drink it!
  7. You can make many variations of yogurt treats. Yogurt smoothies; fresh oats and yogurt with nuts and fruit; dried mint with cucumbers, and raisins; minced shallots, and salt; yogurt cheese can be made by draining the water by pouring the yogurt through a cheese cloth; mix a cup of yogurt with sparkling water and fresh mint for a cool refreshing drink; Use your homemade yogurt as a mouthwash by diluting it with filtered water and swishing it around in your mouth. You can also use the diluted yogurt water in your water pick for extra oral hygiene!
