HOMEMADE FULL FAT YOGURT by Dennis Bird
I have heard Jimmy remark on numerous occasions on how hard it is to find full fat yogurt. I have a simple recipe for yogurt that can be as full fat as you want it to be.
1. Take 4 to 6 cups of whole milk (highest quality you can buy)
2. If you want a fuller fat recipe, substitute one cup or more of the milk with heavy cream
3. Heat the milk/cream to 180 degrees, stirring constantly and take off the burner.
4. Cool the mixture to 110 degrees then add 1/2 to 1 cup of room temperature unsweetened yogurt and mix.
5. poor the mixture into a glass or plastic container and seal with a lid.
6. Place the container in a water bath in a slow cooker with a programable temp guage set for 110 degrees. (if you don’t have this type of slow cooker, I’ve heard you can turn on the light in your oven and set your yogurt inside and that will be about 110.)
7. Let it sit for 10 to 12 hours. Once the yogurt is solid you can put it in the fridge.
8. If you want a thicker yogurt, strain out the whey water using 4 layers of cheese cloth.
I’ve done this recipe many times and it’s amazing how easy it is and how good the yogurt is. I once did a batch with 4 cups of whole milk to 2 cups heavy cream. Once I strained it, it was a thick as cream cheese!
