So, if someone is say, afraid of skyr...would they be skyrscared? Maybe a  
new Viking taunt for the faint of heart...hmm

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
