Super easy to make, perfect for smoothies, separates easily into whey. Tart, refreshing flavor. I've had this culture going for almost a year now, with no change in flavor or consistency. (Posted on 3/15/2011)
Filmjolk is delicious and exceptionally easy to make. It has a mild, ever so slightly tangy flavor and a lovely delicate texture, which my children appreciate. I use filmjolk every day. It's great for homemade muesli. It is very nice with some fruits, nuts, maple or honey, and I've even been able to use filmjolk with some jam or lingonberry preserves as a dessert for my children. I have a nice dessert trick for filmjolk. I mix a little coconut oil with an equal amount honey. When you pour cold filmjolk on this, it will harden the mixture. Then, you can break the mixture apart with a fork, making lovely honey chips in the filmjolk. I highly recommend this product. (Posted on 5/5/2011)
This summer I remembered my Swedish grandmother making filbunk (sp) in a bowl on her cupboard when I was a child. I have been making filmjolk since I found this website. Although it is quite different than my grandmother's yogurt, it is delicious. My sister and her children now eat quantities of it as well. It is so easy to make. This winter I have found that putting the jars, covered with 2 towels, on baking sheet on my cable box for approximately 22 hours makes the finest yogurt I have ever made. I heartily recommend it to anyone. (Posted on 1/17/2012)
Of all the mesophilic (can make at room temp) yogurts, this is by far my favorite . Very versatile , great in smoothies, to cook with, as a salad dressing base and makes great yogurt cheese. The subtle cheese-like flavor really gives the flavor more character without being overwhelming or undesirable . So easy to make and maintain too ! (Posted on 3/29/2012)
I love milking my goats, and finding unusual uses for the surplus; but I need sour cream regularly for the scones I make for my husbands breakfast. I tried thickening Kefir, but didn't get that right yet. (recipe anyone?) However, drained Filmjolk tastes so similar to sour cream and works in the recipe! Yippy! Another step towards independence from the grocery store! (Posted on 6/18/2014)
I think I like this more than the matsoni yogurt because it is milder and less tart. Excellent yogurt and so easy to make. Both are great products, I just prefer this one for eating plain as is and use the matsoni for smoothies, dressings, etc. Highly recommend! (Posted on 7/23/2014)
Wow. You certainly do get a lot of bang for your buck! I'm used to making strong Greek yogurt so the mild nature and complete lack of work on my part took some getting used to but it was worth it!
Add a little homey and fresh blackberries (or other fruit, of course) and my 9 year old comes running. That has never happened before! I honestly can't wait to add it to recipes as well. (Posted on 11/6/2014)
