Yogurt In A Crockpot

By: Ameera Rahim

Did you know it is easy to make your own yogurt? save money and make a nice healthy yogurt for you and your family.

There are many methods to making homemade yogurt; on the stove, in the oven and in the crockpot.

This easy crockpot method is one I love, Ma'shaAllah! All you need it patience, a yogurt starter (small container of yogurt for the live cultures), crockpot and a gallon milk.

You can buy live cultures, but we've found it's easier to get a small cup of plain yogurt from the grocery store. Live cultures are said to help those who are lactose intolerant to digest the milk better.
Also organic whole milk would be a great choice for this homemade yogurt. If you are vegan there are many recipes that use hemp seed milk, almond milk, coconut milk and other non-dairy milks.

To make this yogurt:

Pour a gallon of milk in the crockpot
Place it on high for 2.5 hours
let cool undisturbed for three hours

Now test the yogurt temp, If you can put your finger in the crockpot for 10 seconds then you can move to the next step:

Take out two cups of warm milk, mix in the yogurt starter and then pour it back into the crockpot and mix it.

Wrap the crockpot with a towel, to help the yogurt cool down slowly and then let it sit for 11 hours. Some people put it in the oven of course with the oven OFF, just as an extra way of locking in the heat. This is optional, just don't forget that the crockpot is in the oven! Then take it out and place in jars and refrigerate right away

Enjoy with your favorite fruit topping and honey or homemade granola Ma'shaAllah its very good!!
