Homemade Raw Milk Yogurt

1 Qt of whole milk

3 T Yogurt (plain and full fat) *I prefer organic.

Bring a quart of milk to 110 degrees gently.  Add 1 T yogurt to warmed milk and stir well.

Add remaining 2 T yogurt to the jar. Carefully add warmed milk to the jar.

Now put the lid on your jar and put the jar in a little lunchbox-size cooler and fill the cooler with the hottest tap water you have up to the neck of the jar.  Loosen the lid just a bit and close the lunchbox.  Set it somewhere it won’t be bothered or opened.

In about 10 hours you will have nice creamy yogurt.  Just tighten the lid back up and put it in the fridge.

You can find the original recipe in Nourishing Traditions!

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
