Food Porn - Quest edition  
Skyr, hanging up to drain and the finished, fabulous skyr. Topping options included blackberries, strawberries, honey, and gooseberries.

Barley porridge - barley, onions, garlic, sorrel, salt, and salmon.

Snackies! from 12'oclock - dried cherries, dried currants, walnuts, hazelnuts, and speltberries.

Flatbreads - on the fire and on the plate! Two types of cakes were made - vegetarian spelt and barley-oat cakes full of lardy goodness.Topping options included honey, butter, malt, skyr, apple butter, gooseberries, um... and some other tasty goo. :)

Not pictured, because I am teh fail at taking pictures at events - oat porridge (both as porridge and fried porridge slices), roast vegetables, and boiled roast. Someday I'll get better at it. :P  Anyway, although I served the products to many people, I'm counting the skyr, sorrel-salmon porridge, boiled roast, spelt bread and barley-oat cakes as A&S 50 items #14-18, since those are the ones that were reasonably involved to make and/or research and I certainly eated up my share. :)~ Hurray for yummy projects!

thanks for sharing photos--it looks yummy
I looked up skyr recipes on line, and they say that ideally one should use a bit of skyr to add to your skim milk to get the correct bacteria, and that if one uses yoghurt or buttermilk instead you get a different taste. What did you use to get the culture? If you have actual skyr as a starter where did you get it?

I'm lucky - Whole Foods actually carries TWO brands of skyr. Siggi's is more sour, skyr.is is more mellow, but I like the sharp flavor of Siggi's better. It's not as ubiquitous as Greek yogurt is these days, but it's becoming more available in specialty shops.

Mmm, skyr with honey and berries. Yum.

I also like skyr mixed with whipped cream and berries. Very delish.

You're making me crave cloudberries. It all sounds very nom.

It was all very tasty, except for the roast veggies which were just sort of meh. I have been toying with the idea of boiling a roast and then using the roast water for the lentils. Not sure if they would have done that, but it would make them tasty... no longer vegetarian appropriate, but tasty.

IKEA sells cloudberry jam, which is not perfectly appropriate, but it is the only way I have been able to find cloudberries anywhere in the states.
