enlarge 69KB, 720x420 47 Bake in very hot oven for about 15 min. then place a piece of parchment paper over the tops to prevent burning, and turn the pan around and slip back in the oven for another 10 min or so. My oven is about 425 degrees.

enlarge 51KB, 640x599 98 Take a 2 qt. stainless steel pan.
enlarge 58KB, 640x568 99 Put in a fine mesh strainer.
enlarge 44KB, 640x610 100 Put in a large coffee filter-the 30 cup restaurant type. I bought a large bundle (more than I'll need in two years) for $18.00
enlarge 25KB, 640x466 101 Watch when skim starts to form on top.
enlarge 38KB, 640x584 102 Take the thermometer and run around top to remove the skim.
enlarge 29KB, 640x570 103 Move the milk first with a cup measure to the 2 qt. bowl. I do this because the flat bottomed pan has handles, and cannot go into an oven.
enlarge 48KB, 630x640 104 Strain into the 2 qt. bowl (no handles) first with the cup measure, then you can pour, otherwise you can pour and spill the milk.
enlarge 44KB, 640x564 105 Put in the simmering oven for 30 minutes. I wash out all bowls and utensils and dry them during this time.
enlarge 63KB, 640x580 106 put down two towels. I've used the same ones for years and keep them covered in a basket so the only thing they do is this.
enlarge 38KB, 640x508 107 After you get the milk out of the oven, I transfer into the flat bottomed pan, straining it through a filer, and then wait until the temperature reaches 115 degrees.
enlarge 20KB, 640x492 108 Waiting until the temperature reaches 115. Only takes maybe 10 min.
enlarge 32KB, 640x403 109 I have a pottery bowl that holds about 6 quarts, put the strainer and the filter in it, and put the milk into the blue bowl, take out the strainer and the filter
enlarge 41KB, 640x479 110
enlarge 30KB, 640x429 111 Then I add about 1/2 cup of 0% Fage yogurt into a cup measure and take a cup of the warm milk and mix with a fork.
enlarge 39KB, 640x557 112 Stir until the fork rests on the top. The mix is thick.
enlarge 44KB, 477x640 113 Place the pottery bowl on the two towels, flatten out a filter and cover it,
enlarge 42KB, 640x448 114 Add a lid that covers the size of the bowl, and keeps the filter flat.
enlarge 75KB, 640x540 115 Cover with terry hand towel one way,
enlarge 73KB, 595x640 116 Cover with the second hand towel in the other direction so you cover the bowl all the way around. Tuck in sides and leave for approximately 6 hours on the top of the lid. I'll check this just before I leave for work at noon, and if it is set-you will know as it is not going to move about and has a glassy surface.
enlarge 23KB, 610x640 117 It was not ready before I left for work, so I left it alone until I got home. It was just right. Here is the one cup measure that is sitting on top of the yogurt.
enlarge 40KB, 640x621 118 put a filter inside a sieve over a bowl you are going to be putting in the fridge.
enlarge 40KB, 640x570 119 Put in by the one cup measure until you have it all in there.
enlarge 31KB, 640x547 120 Cover it with another filter (I like to do this just to keep it super clean).
enlarge 32KB, 640x576 121 Cover it with a lid and put it in the fridge for at least 6 hours. Since it is 9pm, I'll wait until the morning to finish it.
enlarge 31KB, 640x561 122 Take the container out of the fridge.
enlarge 24KB, 640x527 123 Take off the top filter and lay it on the inside of the upturned lid.
enlarge 33KB, 640x551 124 Here it is!!
enlarge 28KB, 640x557 125 Fold up the sides of the filter and lift it out of the sieve. Lay it on the top filter. Then you can put it in a container in the fridge. It comes out quite nicely and peels right off the filter with a spoon.
enlarge 101KB, 616x640 126 Here is about 1 1/2 cups of whey. If I had the time I'd make more biscuits for Tutti. If I can't use it up in one day, I will add a few spoons-full to Tuttis food, and Charles The Cats food.
