Skyr is a traditional Islandic milk product. It’s really a cheese, but it’s also got some yogurt characteristics. And it is really delicious! If you’d like to make your own batch of Skyr, here’s your step-by-step FooDoo guide!
Ingredients:

  • 1/2 gallon Whole Milk
  • 7 drops of Rennet and Starter yogurt, or 2 TBSP from a Skyr-like product or yogurt

You’ll also need:

  • A Thermometer
  • A Strainer (such as a cloth coffee strainer)
  • Cheesecloth (if you can’t find a different strainer – you do need a tight weave in your strainer)
  • Jars or storage containers

Make sure all your items are sterilized. You also should not use organic mixing items, such as wooden spoons. To make our FooDoo Skyr:

  1. Take milk and pour into pot heat to 185. Let it sit there for 2 minutes
  2. Remove from heat, put lid on it, and let it sit until it’s between 110-115 degrees (~ 45 minutes)
  3. Add 2 TBSP of starter yogurt and 6 drops of rennet
  4. Cover it and put it in the oven and let it sit 10 hours. DO NOT PEEK!
  5. After 10 hours check on your skyr. It will either look like a custard or separated of curds and whey. Either is fine
  6. Pour this through the strainer
  7. Put this in a bowl and put it in the refrigerator. Let it sit another few hours while the whey drips out of the cheese. It will look like cream cheese when it’s ready to eat!
  8. Put it in a separate container and it will keep for about 2 weeks. Before you’re done eating it, take a few TBSP of it and use that as your starter for your next batch of Skyr.

Eat it plain with a little bit of honey. It’s delicious!
