Description

Viili Yogurt Starter Culture - Finnish curd milk ORGANIC

Viili is a fermented milk yogurt from Finland. It is thick and viscous, almost jelly like, very “ropey”. It is mildly sweet and pleasant tasting. Viili thrives on cream. Make it with half and half for a rich dessert. Eat it plain, served with fruit and berries, or sweetened with honey, sugar, or Stevia powder. Because of its gelatinous texture, Viili makes delicious parfaits.

A cultured milk product from Finland, Viili came from Finland over 100 years ago! No special incubators or sterile jars are needed. Just add milk and ferment at room temperature right on your kitchen counter until it "sets", cool, and ENJOY! That's all there is to it! The flavor is mild, not tart, and the texture is creamy and honey-like. Each culture is a starter for the next.

*Without any special equipment, the traditional Finnish dairy product viili is surprisingly easy to prepare at home.

**TURN YOUR MILK INTO A HEALTHY LIVING PROBIOTIC FOOD!*

*Right on your kitchen counter - Fermented at ROOM TEMPERATURE!*

Each yogurt starter makes a delicious homemade yogurt that is idea for easy home yogurt making. No need of boiling and cooling milk before use or incubating your yogurt starter in a warm oven or home yogurt maker for hours before it will set. The yogurt is instead cultured in cold milk and is placed right on your kitchen counter and allowed to set. After it is then cooled, you will have made tempting homemade yogurt which is now ready to be flavored or eaten plain. All without the expense and bother of a home yogurt maker. By setting aside some of the yogurt from each batch of freshly made yogurt as your yogurt starter or seed to make your next batch of fresh yogurt, our yogurt starters will last you indefinitely. No need to periodically replace your yogurt starters in order to replenish your yogurt supply.

We supply FRESH yogurt starter cultures, enough to get you started making 2 cups of yogurt for your first batch. Make once a week to sustain viability of the yogurt starter culture.

Instructions will be provided through a direct internet link. Please let us know if you need a hard copy sent with your order.

***HOWEVER, IF YOU WOULD PREFER A DRIED CULTURE, WE CAN SEND YOU WHAT WE SEND OUR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS, AS NOTED BELOW. PLEASE SPECIFY AT CHECKOUT IF YOU PREFER THAT. EITHER WAY IS FINE. DRIED IS BEST IF YOU THINK THE PACKAGE MAY BE SITTING IN INCLEMENT WEATHER FOR A PERIOD OF TIME IN YOUR MAILBOX.

**FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS, WE WILL SEND YOU DRIED CULTURE ON ORGANIC COTTON, enough to get you started making 1/2 cup of yogurt for the first batch, but then you can make a larger quantity for your second batch. International shipping is very low as the weight of the dried cultures is very light.

*If you are using raw milk (YES! YOU CAN USE RAW MILK! We ONLY use raw milk for ours), you will need additional steps in order to maintain a pure seed starter to make your yogurt with your cold raw milk. This is explained further in our instructions.*

**We use ONLY ORGANIC milk, ALWAYS. We also use NON-HOMOGENIZED RAW milk, the best quality you can buy.**

Please check out our store, as we will certainly combine shipping. We offer many cultures that are easy and fun to make at home and ones that we suspect your children will like as well :-).

*We ship very quickly after cleared payment, usually the same day or the next. We also answer emails instantly in most cases.

*We do guarantee our cultures to work for you if our instructions are followed. We will happily, quickly send out another if they do not.

*We also sell Caspian Sea Yogurt, Piima, Buttermilk, Greek, Bulgarian, and Fil Mjolk yogurt cultures, so you can try as many as you like.

WE NOW HAVE A 5 PACK SAMPLER PACK THAT INCLUDES ALL OF OUR ROOM TEMP YOGURTS AT A DISCOUNT - PIIMA, FIL MJOLK, VIILI, CASPIAN SEA YOGURT, AND BUTTERMILK! You can even substitute the Greek or Bulgarian if you wish!

THANKS AND HAVE A BLESSED DAY! <><

    I remember eating this as a child. My grandmother would bring a starter from Michigan to the Southwest, where we lived. We called it fillibunk—obviously, that name cannot be traced online! I am most pleased with the product and the people who are selling it. A+

    Thank you for viili. I can't buy it anywhere in Germany and a trip to Finland is a bit too far. At first, I was a little bit skeptical as to whether the culture survived the long journey. But it works and I love it. Many greetings from a new viili fan ;)
