We had homemade yogurt over homemade granola this morning. I'm such a hippie. I know. I can hear you say, "What? What is a lazy girl like you doing making homemade things you can buy from the store?" Well, I'm also cheap. Granola is expensive and we go through a TON of yogurt around here. AND.... they're super duper easy to make. Seriously. Would I make them otherwise? Crockpot365 (link here) is an amazing website dedicated to cooking without having to pay attention to it. Awesome. I know. She has recipes for yogurt (link here) and granola (link here)
Basically... (But go to her website for exact instructions)...
Dump half a gallon of milk in the crock on low.
Leave it alone 2.5 hrs.
Turn it off and cover it.
Leave it alone for 3 hours.
Mix 2 c of the milk with 1/2 c yogurt and mix it back in.
Leave it alone for 8 hours.
Dump the oats, some butter, and everything else you want to add in the crock on high.
Vent the lid with a chopstick (isn't that part funny?)
Leave it alone for 3-4 hours, except when you start to smell the wonderful granola smell and remember to stir it.
Cheap and (moderately) lazy. I prefer full-board lazy, but cheap does sometimes take over.
