I'm not sure about the yogurt adventure. When I looked at it this morning is was very liquid-like. It's in the refrigerator now where I am hoping it will thicken. I would post a picture, but it just looks like vaguely thick milk. Not very exciting.
Regarding pumpkin butter: while looking for information on how to adapt the pumpkin butter recipe I was given into a recipe using low sugar pectin I came across information stating that pumpkin butter should not be hot water bath processed and stored at room temperature. Due to being a low-acid fruit there is a danger of botulism. As you know, I am trying to not poison my family, so I am still making pumpkin butter today, but it is in the slow cooker at the moment and the resulting pumpkin butter will be stored in the freezer instead.
Sad, sad. I wanted to see all of my cute little canning jars lined up and filled with good things in the pantry.
If I have the time and energy I plan to make granola this afternoon. I've used a great recipe from this book lots of times and it makes the best granola in the world (no exaggeration).
