Satisfy that urge
Do you have a longing for true, Icelandic Skyr? That delicious food item like yogurt, only much better? If you have a Whole Foods Market near you, you may be in luck. At stores on the east coast of the U.S., Whole Foods has begun carrying Siggi's Skyr. The flavors make my mouth water: pomegranate and passion fruit, pear and mint, orange and ginger--as well as plain. As reported in the 4/08 Iceland Review, Siggi Hilmarsson learned how to make it from his mother's recipe, perfected it, and, being an Icelander transplanted to New York, began to manufacture it. (New Yorkers will see from Siggi's website that they have lots of additional options. Don't they always.) Alas, I may have to move to Charlottesville.
If I can't have Skyr, I am glad to have discovered another delicious yogurt product, from Greece. Fage may be expensive and high in calories, but you don't need sugar, jam or any other sweetener: plain, this is like dessert every day! And, a small serving will satisfy. Try it!
