For those of you who got the latest Compleat Anachronist, ‘Skyr and Mysa: Viking Curds and Whey,” you may be interested to know that you can get skyr at Whole Foods. They carry the Siggi’s brand, in plain and a few flavors. It’s in the dairy case with the yogurt.
For those who don’t get the CA and don’t know what skyr is, it’s a dairy product that is and was a staple of the Icelandic diet, and was common in Scandinavia and Danelaw Britain during the Viking era. It is made from skim milk, acidified by bacterial cultures (like yogurt), then curdled with rennet (like cheese). It is like a cross between thickened yogurt and ice cream in texture, and tastes like yogurt, with a touch more whang to it.
So, you Norsemen who want a period-appropriate breakfast food, get some skyr, stir in a little honey and some berries, and go to town!
Who is Irish, but will probably be packing skyr for events in future
