A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned.
I have often lamented the difficulty of finding whole milk yogurt! And when I did find it, I never enjoyed the price. So when I found several pin on Pinterest about making my own, I was intrigued. I was a little afraid of serving sour milk to my family, but at the amount of people who are doing it, and finding NOTHING online about the dangers, I decided to give it a try.
Here is the blog I followed. The directions were the simplest. I added 1/2 cup of sugar when I added the vanilla, and it was plenty to sweeten the entire gallon. And trust me, I like SWEET things!
Oh, and before I began, I SANITIZED every thing. The crock pot, whisk, spoon, crock pot lid, measuring cup, yes, I mean everything. Mind you, these things were already clean, but I had to re-sanitize them. If I was going to let bacteria grow, it was ONLY going to be good bacteria ;)
My kiddos LOVED eating it. I even added some chocolate chips, an idea my daughter got from the Berenstain Bears.
