Rain and maybe snow
January 11, 2019 2:31pm CST
We have had rain all morning and it may change to snow. Should have known it was coming, as I woke up with a headache around 3:30 a.m. Eventually I gave up and got up. I worked in the kitchen. I have made yogurt, and it is in the dehydrator, warming and culturing. I also made sausage gravy, and our lunch which was beef with red beans and rice.With that we had a microwaved sweet potato, cornbread and hot tea. Oh, also have done dishes. Time to do some more. After breakfast we chose to go run some errands we needed to do, in case the snow starts. It rained heavily. I tried to post from my phone. Not a success. I have also put together a breakfast casserole for the rest of the week. I think Bob will make hamburgers this evening. One day this week we will have "turkey pot pie". I still have some turkey and stuffing to eat as well. I guess we will not starve, even if we have a blizzard. Hope you guys are all comfortable and well fed.

I made chili today as well. I explained on @maezee s response how I make yogurt. Yogurt is a fermented product and has to be kept warm or incubated while it is growing. My best place to keep it at an even temperature for several hours is to put it in the dehydrator at the lowest temperature.I figured I would need to explain it. A long time ago I had made a post about my method on here. I do not know if it is searchable now.

No it is not hard to make yogurt. There are many ways to keep it warm. I have a square dehydrator and the jars will fit inside, but there are lots of other ways to keep it about ninety degrees or so while the yogurt grows. I scald my milk in the microwave so I do not scorch it. I stir in extra dry milk powder. When it cools to around 90 or 95 I stir in a good brand of Greek yogurt, and put it in canning jars with lids. I turn on my dehydrator. I have used a cooler chest filled partially with hot water, and I have used a slow cooker with a water bath. My nephew says there is a recipe to make yogurt with an insta pot. My method usually takes 6-8 hours, and I make a little over two quarts at a time. I use it just to eat with fruit or I make smoothies, etc with it.
