I use my crock pot/ slow cooker frequently, especially when the weather turns warm. I make stews & soups, lamb shanks in beef broth, pulled pork, shredded beef for tacos, Wassail in the winter, and more than I can bring to mind right now.

It is such a useful kitchen appliance for me. I haven't noticed a reduction in flavor from anything I've put in my crock pot. Sometimes the flavor is enhanced when small amounts of liquid is used.

We've quit buying Greek yogurt, so easy to make in the CP.

I'd like to see that, too, Dawg! Is it less expensive than buying yogurt?

Cheap! I've used skim milk, or 2%, works just fine. I keep a small container of starter for the next batch in the freezer.

Don't use ultra pasturized half and half. Not enough bacteria. I no longer buy yogurt.

I have to give the credit to Taxy. Am thinking she's the one who started my expedition into homemade yogurt.

Actually, it's not the bacteria. You introduce them yourself. It's the protein that gets its structure changed. Can't use it cheese making because of that too.

I remember posting about making yogourt, using a heating pad to keep it at the right temperature. I have never tried using a slow cooker. That would simplify it. I will have to check how hot my slow cooker is on low.
