Skyr - in Calgary?

CriolloLover Jun 8, 2009 06:02 PM

Anyone have any leads on purchasing Skyr in Calgary? Recently back from a trip to Iceland, and I'm craving this for breakfast. Thanks for the beta.

    Is this the same as quark? If so you might look for it with that name- have definitely seen it in Calgary.

      A non-answer.
      http://treheima.blogspot.com/search?q... - the December 1, 2008 entry.
      "We get our skyr shipped from a small grocery store in Arborg, Manitoba, by the name of Palsson's. As far as we know, it's the only place in Canada that makes and sells the stuff. They make it in their dairy section."
      You could try contacting her for more info - there seems to be no web presence for Palsson Fine Foods
      265 Main St

        Thanks for the rare lead - I tried to no avail to get info from them on skyr. I've dug up a few recipes online and will try my feeble at hand at recreating it at home.

          Nobody seems to be making it commercially anymore.
          See this other skyr thread http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/644420
