Skyr is a traditional Icelandic yoghurt, made from sheep’s milk. I’ve finally found a source in the UK, the excellent Scandinavian Kitchen on Great Titchfield Street, just around the corner from my work. they occasionally stock skyr and they apparently have a skyr email list if you want to be notified.
The original, traditional skyr is really thick and is prepared by mixing it with milk to the desired consistency. The version shown here is ready-mixed, but not flavoured or sweetened. And actually comes from Denmark. But I’m assured it tastes right. So, if you want to prepare some skyr…
1) Put the appropriate amount into a mixing bowl.
2) Add sugar to taste and mix thoroughly.
3) Serve in individual bowls, top with a little soft brown sugar and a dash of milk, or even cream, around the edge.
(or serve with bláber compote)
