    So, I picked up a brand new, in the box and still wrapped, yogurt maker at a yard sale (for $1) and am excited to try it out. Will your recipe work in it ok? AND, if I don't want to use powdered milk do I just not add it? Adding sweetners - when and how much?

    I know these questions are probably already answered in your yogurt thread but my GOSH that sucker is 95+ pages long! lol.

    OH, I also have a question about your ice cream. You use a 5 qt machine - ours is only 2 quart. If I halve your recipe will it still make too much for my little 2 quart?

    I got a Yogurt maker for Christmas & Yes Miss Prissy's Yogurt recipe Will work. [​IMG] I used it instead of my yogurt maker's recipe that came with it. I have had no probs at all.

    But like you I didn't want to use the powdered milk so I myself left it out. But what I've found is it's little watery, so I let the yogurt drip for the whey water to drain out. & it's great. The longer you let it drip the thicker it'll be. I have heard how UNflavored gelatin can be added (1 box) to thicken it (you add it after the cultured yogurt, then add it into the yogurt maker to -create- yogurt). [​IMG] I have used whole milk & 2% milk & have mine -cook- in my yogurt maker for 7hrs (what my yogurt maker recommends) & it's set fine, just has a lot of whey (water). I've also read how cornstarch can be added for thickening but haven't experimented yet on thickening agents yet. I've just recently used started using my yogurt maker.

    I didn't want to add sugar to mine, to keep it healthy. So I take some plain -homemade- yogurt into my Magic Bullet personal cup mixer & add fresh or frozen fruit & blend it up, then eat as a smoothie.

    Hope this helps :)
