Ever wanted to use Skyr in your recipes- or just as a healthy supplement to your daily diet, but havn’t found one at the market? Well, now you can! Check out the recipe below and have your life transformed with creamy, smooth, delicious Skyr.
Skyr is a Nordic yogurt which has been considered healthy for many years due to its high protein and low fat content. It has its origins from Iceland, but has become famous throughout the entire Nordic region. In Iceland, they still consider it a household staple and many families keep a home made batch.
Making Skyr is almost like prepearing for a sour dough bread- you keep some of the mixture for your next batch as a ‘live culture’. If you don’t happen to have an old Skyr, and can’t get your hands on it, try Gunnar Karl Gíslason way;
“Back in the old days, people would pour skimmed milk into a container and leave it outside until the bacteria needed to make the skyr had begun to form. Some people would even experiment by leaving the milk in different places; down by the seashore, in little hollows, or high up on heaths, to see which produced the best bacteria. One could easily do the same today—that would be real skyr-making.”
Yield 6 servings
