    I bought organic full fat plain yogurt a few weeks ago while some friends were visiting. I noticed that it had a slightly odd texture. I checked the ingredients - there was fricking corn starch added to the yogurt. WHHHHYYYYY?!?!?!?
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    My husband swears you can only get real yogurt from middle eastern markets. This weekend I want to visit a local dairy farm where you can take a tour and feed the baby calves before stopping in the farms store for natural milk, cream, butter, etc.

    Yum. Labneh goes well with lamb which is often cheaper at middle eastern markets as well. And even better is a Turkish yogurt dip called Haydari. When I lived in Istanbul I would smear it on steak.

    Great point! The only reason I am able to get raw dairy is because I buy it from a farm family that has a few little stores that follow WAP in my state. I'd rather give them my money. But still cannot get raw butter. I may try making my own.

    was thinking of you yesterday cuz i just bought labne for the first time, not in my usual hood. can't wait to try it. how do you usually eat it? "as is" or with stuff? am thinking with eggplant and lamb?
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    The reason they add milk solids is it makes it thicker. Watery yogurt isn't a big seller, and low-fat or fat free yogurt doesn't have enough milk fat not to be watery without added milk solids.

    Both! straight from a spoon makes a great easy fast breakfast. It can be put in celery sticks or bell pepper slices for snackies. It also makes a great base for many sauces and can make any soup thicker and creamier.
