Yield: 8 cups
Nutrition: 130 calories, 12 carbs per cup
8 cups 2% milk
2 tsp plain yogurt (does not have to be exact)
Heat the milk on medium-low until the temperature reaches 180 F. Remove from heat to begin cooling. When temperature is between 120-110 F (but not below or above), stir in the plain yogurt.
Set your oven heat to warm, or the lowest temperature.
Move the milk mixture to a glass or porcelain container with a lid, and fully wrap the container in a towel. Turn the oven off, and place the wrapped container in the oven; close the door. Let incubate for 8-12 hours; refrigerate.
Note: If you would like thicker yogurt, strain the yogurt by placing a cheesecloth or paper towel in the bottom of a strainer set over a bowl. Leave in the fridge to strain and discard the liquid whey or use it for another purpose.
