Don't leave it in the over more then 8 hour I find it 8 hours give a strong flavor and might try 7.5 hours. You want 1/4 a cup of yogurt (it was measuring it weird...) Makes 8 -1/2 cup servings

Recipe Ingredients for In the oven homemade yogurt

4 cups of 2% milk
1/2 cup Milk Powder Skim Instant
1/4 cup plain yogurt

Recipe Directions for In the oven homemade yogurt

  1. Measure yogurt in a bowl and set aside for later. You want it to be room temperature at the time of mixing.

  2. Mix milk and powdered milk while the milk is still cool (It mixes better in cold milk then warm) Heat combined milk on the stove top slowly until it reaches 180F - you don't want to burn it. I find medium is a good stable setting.

  3. Pre-heat your oven so that it is around 110-120F then turn off the oven and turn on the light (this needs to be left on for the 8 hours you yogurt cultures).

  4. Cool milk to 115F. (You can leave it to cool on its own or soak the pot in a bowl or sink of ice water for rapid cooling.)

  5. Remove some milk from the pot and add it to the yogurt in the bowl making sure to mix them thoroughly together. Add back to the pot of milk.

  6. Pour into glass containers which are not to wide. You can reuse jars which you have bought with food in them once there washed etc...

  7. Put in preheated oven.

  8. NOTE: Many ovens don't pre heat to that temperature so play with your oven a bit and when the oven is turned off make sure it stabilizes to the right temperatures. Also the light in the oven needs to be on and is enough heat to maintain your oven at the correct incubator temperature.

  9. Leave to jars in the oven for 8 hours Some people make there yogurt over night -I can't because my avg nights sleep is 10 hours. So I make my yogurt in the middle of the morning and take it out before bed

  10. Some additional information on making yogurt:

  11. Lower milk fat (i.e. Skim) will produce a tart and runnier yogurt ? to tart and runny for my taste.

  12. Powdered milk is used because milk solids produce a thicker consistency ? Use less if you want a runnier yogurt

  13. Heating the milk to 180F kills any bacteria in the milk that might compete with your yogurt bacteria

  14. Its important to cool your milk other wise the heat will kill your good bacteria

  15. Sname goes for oven temperature ...if its to hot the yogurt bacteria will die and there wont be any yogurt.

  16. Your next batch of yogurt can be made by saving some of the yogurt you just made. However, this might stop working after awhile. It's also good to use fresher yogurt ? not yogurt that open and been sitting in the fridge for awhile.
