Homemade Honey-Vanilla Greek Yogurt

What am I reading now? Tabatha Bride of Missouri (Amelia C. Adams)

Annnd . . . what do I think so far? There are 50 books in this series--50!!! One for every state. This book is #24.

An orphan since she was ten, Tabitha Phillips was raised by a cousin who resented her, and she went out on her own as soon as she could. When the factory where she was working burned down, she was forced to return to her childhood home under the scrutiny of her critical relatives. 

As an employee at the post office, Tabitha isn't supposed to become involved in the doings of her customers. But when one young man's heart could be broken by a thoughtless letter, she sees a chance to make a difference . . . for herself as well as for him.
Honey-Vanilla Greek Yogurt
I finally have a recipe I love for homemade Greek Yogurt
Carolyn Twede Frank (Author of The Hitler Dilemma) shared her recipe with me and this is just a bit different) You can see her recipe HERE with pictures!)

My recipe:
•Combine 8 cups of whole milk and 1 package Knox Unflavored Geletin, and bring the temperature to 170-180 degrees F, then remove from heat.

•Add 1/4 cup honey and 1 tablespoon of vanilla to the pan of milk, and stir to mix. Stir gently every now and again to keep a skin from forming.

•When the milk cools to 110 degrees F, stir in one packet of bacteria culture. (You can use 1 cup of yogurt from a pervious batch instead.)

•Transfer the milk to your yogurt maker and set to incubate for 8-10 hours. The longer you incubate the firmer the yogurt and a more sour the taste.

•Refrigerate over night.
