For years I heard about Greek yogurt, but never found it in the grocery store. Perhaps it was there all along, but I never saw it among the dizzying assortment of yogurt in the dairy case. Then one memorable day, I found it. I bought a carton and immediately fell in love with the thick, smooth texture, unlike yogurt thickened with gelatin or pectin. It's my understanding that Greek yogurt is made by boiling sheep or cow's milk, until the water content in the milk is reduced. This concentrated milk eventually becomes a marvelous yogurt, so delicious it's one of my favorite things to eat for dessert. I'll take a carton of it over ice cream anytime. I like to tell myself that it's much healthier for me, but truth to tell, Greek yogurt can be high in fat and calories. But, I don't care. There's a split of opinion among Greek yogurt fans about whole milk versus skim milk varieties. Count me in the whole milk faction, as the skim milk version tastes grainy to me. But, I know people who swear that Fage and Trader Joe make a skim milk product equal to that made with whole milk. Well, I'll never give up my whole milk Greek yogurt. Never!
