Yogurt in the Nesco Roaster

Just finished making two quarts of wonderful yogurt in my
6 quart Nesco roaster. It was ready in about 5 hours.
Not too tart, a lovely custard formed and when it is cold I
shall 'Greek' it.

If you are interested in knowing how to do this. Just
say so and I'll post the directions.

Yogurt in the Nesco Roaster

I will type up the formulation and get it posted here.

Happy that you are interested. I used two Atlas mason jars,
with the lids (pasta sauce comes in these jars)They fit into roast
with the lids on.
For lower carb:
I used 1 quart of 4% milk and either 1 qt. half and half or cream.
1 small carton of Fage yogurt for starter (only need it the first time)

Will get back.

Wow, Barbo! Good for you! What does a roaster look like again and can you set the temperature on it?

Jen

Go to Google and put in 'Nesco 6 quart roaster' and it
will show you all about the pan. It's oblong with a dome cover
that comes down over with a high top. It's electric and
you have settings from very low to very high. It's a very
fast roaster, I have found but it also made fabulous yogurt.
It only takes 3-4 hours to ferment perfectly. The longer
you leave it, the more tart it becomes.

I am going to try and get the recipe written up for you
all. I've been really busy in the kitchen most of the week.

Nesco Roaster Yogurt

This is a recipe from a friend who came over to our home to teach me.
NESCO ROASTER YOGURT

6 qt. Nesco Roaster with lid
You are going to use a 2 quart Pyrex mixing bowl
You will need a thermometer
Nylon mixing spatula
1 c. Pyrex mixing cup (to put your therm in)
*3/4 c. culture (I like to start with Fage yogurt for the first time)
Two 1 Qt.Very clean containers. I like the Mason jars that
a certain spaghetti sauce comes in as they fit with the dome lid on.

Place 12 cups of hot water into the Nesco
turn it on and keep it hot
Heat milk to 185 degrees F....stirring every so often
Place in the 2 quart Pyrex down into the water.
Using your thermometer keep the milk at a
temp. of 165 to 200 degrees for 30 minutes.
Lid on helps to heat quickly
Cool down the Nesco to about 115.
Now take your 2 quart Pyrex and plunge it into
( I like the ice bath in the sink routine)
When your milk is between 110-115 add the culture stirring well.
Pour it into your containers and
Place lids on the yogurt and place into Nesco water bath.
Put on the dome lid, keep constant 110-115 degree water temp for
about 2-3 hours. Just check on it until it's the tartness and the
custard that you desire. Take it out and refrigerate.
When it's cold if you want GREEK. Pour it into a fine seive
over a non-reactive pot (stainless etc.) and let it drain out
about 2 c. of whey. That is where the lactose is now. You can
use this water for baking or drinking. Personally I don't want
the lactose which is why I eat yogurt daily.

The longer you culture your yogurt, the more tart it becomes.
This method saves you that long waiting period.

I hope that I have made this clear??

* You can use your own yogurt next time as the culture or starter.

Good for you, Kent! I'd have to buy the roaster first. At the moment I'm making small amounts of yogurt and Barbo promised she would come up with a recipe for a ton of yogurt at a time. Thanks, Barbo.
