A while ago I successfully made yogurt in the crockpot. I was very elated when the yogurt formed. How fun and exciting it was to eat homemade yogurt. Even though it was a bit runny, we didn’t mind it because we were able to drink it with a straw, thus, creating a drinkable yogurt.
I’ve heard about Greek style yogurt for some time but as always, I’m suspicious of the newest fad so I don’t pay much attention to it. Then, I had one. Wow, it was delicious! Thick, creamy and tasty! I should’ve looked in to it sooner. So I quickly did some research online and found that I can make my own Greek style yogurt. To my elation, it was much easier than I thought. All I needed to do was to put the homemade yogurt in a cheese cloth in a colander and strain the whey out. After couple hours, you have Greek yogurt! I add honey and fruit to the yogurt
How easy is that? I keep the whey, a yellowish liquid, and use it in recipes that call for milk. I’ve used it in waffles and pancakes, but instead of using the whey in its entirety, I use half whey and half milk.
Our 3 quarts of yogurt produced this much whey after draining for two hours.
