How to make Homemade Greek Yogurt in a Crock Pot or Slow Cooker. It’s easy, better for the environment, and you only need two ingredients! A naturally gluten free recipe.
Pat and I made a mutual New Year’s resolution to cut down on the plastic we buy, especially pertaining to food. The impact is twofold. One, who knows what chemicals end up in your food because of plastic packaging. The other is lessening the amount of plastic that’s made. Sadly, tons of plastic ends up in the ocean. In fact, every great sea now has a garbage “gyre” or a rotating ring laden with plastics. It’s sickening. Cutting down on our plastic use saves energy, reduces greenhouse gas production and prevents pollution.
An easy first step was to stop buying store bought yogurt. We eat multiple containers of single serve yogurt on a daily basis and our recycling bin is full to the brim by the end of the week. This method of making Greek yogurt in a slow cooker allows us to make enough yogurt to last us at least a week.
