Crock Pot Yogurt
NOTE: For reusable (heirloom) yogurt starters, please activate the starter first, according to the instructions included with your starter.
NOTES: This recipe was developed using a 2-quart crock. If you are using a crock pot with a different capacity, adjustments may be required. Always test the temperature of the unit first, using water. Make adjustments as necessary to maintain the temperature required by your yogurt starter.
