Cooler Yogurt

Renee headshotYou might be wondering about my choice of words in the title. It's just a little joke or play on words. I'm not talking about yogurt that is hip or more hip than other yogurts. I'm talking about the device in which to incubate the milk to make it turn into yogurt. Get it? I guess I could have called it "Picnic Cooler Yogurt," but what would be the fun in that?

There are all sorts of fancy devices on the market today that incubate milk and turn it into yogurt. I can think of at least two right off the top of my head. While these fancy contraptions are great and make the job easy, they are not available to everyone and especially folks on a budget. That's me! Besides, my granny never used these fancy contraptions and her way is good enough for me!

All you need is milk and culture, a picnic cooler, sterilized jars with lids, and a milk thermometer. The optional things are rennet and gelatin.

I like to start my yogurt about an hour before bed time. That way I can leave the milk to incubate over night. Yogurt in the morning!
