Homemade Greek Style Yogurt

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.

One satisfied customer!
