DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, warm milk to 185 degrees, stirring constantly to prevent sticking.
  • Add dry milk to warmed milk and whisk until dissolved.
  • Place pan in a large bowl with ice water and cool milk down to 110 degrees.
  • Place 3 T yogurt in a small bowl and mix with about 1/2 cup of warm milk.
  • Pour pan of warm milk into a one quart jar, then add yogurt mixture.
  • Partially fill a 1 gallon drink cooler with 110 degree water (I use one with the spout in the lid, but any small cooler will work).
  • Place jar in cooler and make sure the water comes up to just below the lid.
  • Cover cooler and place in a warm, sunny spot in your yard for 6-8 hours! The sun will help the yogurt stay nice and warm while it incubates.
  • Refridgerate and enjoy!
