Bought a yogurt maker!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Oooh, I'm so excited.  Bought a yogurt maker at a garage sale this weekend for $5 and can't wait to make my first batch of organic yogurt.  Just have to get to the start to get my "starter" yogurt, which means I need to go to Whole Foods or some place like that, 'cause I want to start out with a very good organic yogurt with live cultures.

 

Very exciting. 

 

My last $5 garage sale purchase was a vacuum food sealer, and I have used the heck out of it.  Best purchase ever!  Hopefully this one will run a close second smile.gif

That sounds interesting! Hope you have lots of fun with it!

 

I've been reading about making cheese and am very curious about the process. Who knows, maybe I'll be talking about cheese and you'll be talking about yogurt! Good luck!

Well for $5 you can't go wrong! Sounds fun and healthy to make your own yogurt.

Yes, and that vacuum sealer is still working like a charm clap.gif (plus came with 4 rolls of "bags" too, two different sizes...what a steal)

 

But this crock pot recipe for yogurt!  Wish I'd known about that before I bought this yogurt maker.  Could have saved $5, since I already have a crockpot laughing02.gif.  Oh well...I'm still glad I got it, because my crock pot is huge, and we would never eat that much yogurt before it would go bad.  I am going to forward that recipe to my niece, however, since she's got 4 kids.  Thanks for sharing.

Just thought I would update that I have been making yogurt in my garage sale yogurt maker now for several months, and I'm lovin' it!  I use greek yogurt for my starter, and non fat milk, and get really thick yogurt.  It's delicious.  And fun to do.  I've got a batch brewing right now jive.gif.

clap.gif Kudos! I'm so glad you're enjoying your yogurt maker! (And the vacuum sealer, too!) I haven't had any time lately to even try to start any mozzarella....but I keep reading about cheese and making your own. It still sounds interesting.

Oooh,homemade motzarella!  I've been saving a recipe for that.  It looks fairly easy.  I'll be anxious to hear how it turns out...when you get the time laughing02.gif

I'd really like to try it this fall, when the weather turns a bit cooler! It does look pretty easy and everybody says it's a great cheese for first-time cheese makers.

my parents bought me one for Christmas. I decided to return it.. 1. I have no room to store anything in my apartment. 2. I doubt I would use it.. I don't use my blender as it is!

That is really COOL, Sally biggrin.gifclap.gif I am a yogurt junkie, love yogurt!! And what deals you are finding at the garage sales. I love garage sales too as you never know what you might find. I found one of those Oster kitchen centers a couple of years ago. It was practically brand new with all the parts and the glass mixing bowls - all for $20.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy yogurt making! and maybe the kitties would like a lick!! laughing02.gif Walden loves it when I eat yogurt and demands a lick or two. biggrin.gif
