Types of yoghurt. Viili has a stringy (almost) consistency, but very thick like yoghurt. And piima is a lot like the viili, without the stringy-ness. The piima, when made with cream is fabulous, super thick just like store-bought sour cream. They are both raw cultures, just add to your raw milk and hold back a little for the next batch. Super healthy! :) And delicious to boot! (Not to mention easy!)

Ok, I'm totally intrigued! What is viili and piima ??
Are you making them on the counter with raw cow's milk?! I would love some!! How could I get some? I could meet dh somewhere when he comes this way, perhaps? Or do you want to mail a bit of each? What are your thoughts?
That's it, yes! I got the viili from a lady whose parents actually brought it with them when they immigrated to the US 40+ yrs ago. The piima is from her dh's family. Both made and consumed it daily.
If you can meet my dh along the way, that'd be easiest for us. Besides they don't seem to transport all that well. Do you have access to fresh milk to use with them? Just wondering, as we have cows. :)
PS How do I send my phone number so that we can arrange a day for dh to bring it with him?
