Great post - I have done homemade yogurt in the crock pot before. About how long do you think homemade yogurt is good for in the fridge?
A friend just asked the same question on facebook. My reply:It's never lasted long enough to go bad.From what I've read, it's supposed to last a month. Maybe I'll save a bit and see if that's true.
Since it is so easy, I am going to give it a try.When I worked at WMC, one of the ozer koach used to take leben, mix a bit of salt to it, pour it into a muslin cloth, and hang it over the sink to let the whey drip for about 6 hours. It makes a pretty acceptable soft cheese.
Let me know how it comes out. I like the taste of homemade much better. I was never a yogurt eater until I started making it myself.
I JUST saw a post about the crockpot yogurt yesterday. VERY excited to do both and see the difference.Sara@ http://yourthrivingfamily.blogspot.com/

I stopped over from Freaky Friday. I have always used a yogurt maker but started doing another blogger's method of doing it in a cooler. I can make a gallon at a time, but I will pass your method along to others who need less than I do!
I will definitely be trying this. Can you recommend a good commercially available yogurt to start a batch with?
Hi Mike,I live in Israel, so I don't have the same brands available as you do. But it's easy to pick a good one. Just read the label. The ingredients should be limited to milk and the probiotic bacteria. If it is made from raw milk and if it's organic, even better. And get one that is frech. Good luck with it!
Can you make yogurt with UHT milk? I live in China and that's basically all I have available. Thanks.Sarah
I'm really glad you wrote an article on making homemade yogurt. I just entered Phase 2 of the GAPS diet...and part of that is making fresh, homemade yogurt. I bought some raw milk today at a local store. I know I can make mine in the oven. However, I'm not sure I want to deal with any potential mess. So I'll probably buy a yogurt maker. Thanks for the nice picture tutorial, Ruth :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of CAlifornia, Heather :)
Let’s not forget the temperature throughout the day might fluctuate. That is why an electric yogurt maker is a marvel to all yogurt makers like us.
