Yes, Virginia, you too can make yogurt in your Crockpot!
Our local newspaper ran an article a couple of days ago about Stephanie O'Dea ( http://www.blogger.com/profile/08618710485017373256 ) who made the interesting New Year's resolution (in 2007) to use her Crockpot every day of 2008 and document the results on a daily blog ( http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008/10/you-can-make-yogurt-in-your-crockpot.html ) .
One of her achievements was homemade yogurt. I tried it and it's great, but I changed a few things a bit. I used skim milk and added a cup of fat-free milk powder as well as 4 tablespoons of honey (à la Alton Brown). Here is a serving sweetened with Splenda and here ( http://home.comcast.net/~cheneworth/recipes/yogurt.htm ) is my recipe.
