Homemade Raw Yogurt Recipe

This one is for you, Anna! I mixed this in with Hailey's baby food when she was over a year old and she loved it.
How To Make Raw Yogurt:
4 cups raw milk
1/2 cup plain pre-made yogurt (if you want to use a powder starter, follow directions on the package or you can get a start off a friend)
1. In saucepan, heat milk to just below boiling point. You have to do this or it will not set up right. Remove milk from heat and cool to somewhere between 100 and 110 degrees F. Can place saucepan in refrigerator for approximately 20 minutes if you want it to cool faster.
2. In the meantime, preheat yogurt maker (you can look up other methods on the net if you don't have a yogurt maker).
3. Add plain yogurt to warm milk, stirring gently to blend. Pour mixture into yogurt container, secure lid and place in warming basket. Cover yogurt maker and process 4 to 10 hours depending on how tart you like your yogurt. Set a timer! Yogurt should be partially set after processing but will thicken after refrigeration. If it isn't set, then try another hour.
4. Place container in refrigerator and chill for at least 2 hours. Don't forget to remover 1/2 cup plain homemade yogurt and store in fridge for use as a starter later! Add fruit, vanilla, honey, etc... to taste. Enjoy!
