Give that runny yogurt the Greek treatment

Posted By on Sun, Mar 21, 2010 at 6:00 PM

We've all gone nuts for thick, custardy Greek yogurt. You can buy a particularly good brand of it at Cafe Campesino, the coffee shop at the entrance to Sweet Auburn Curb Market.

My favorite dessert lately has been the Greek yogurt with Medjool dates and honey at the Shed at Glenwood. The yogurt is not quite as thick as the stuff I've eaten at Kyma, where it's served with walnuts and honey, but it's nonetheless addictive.

There's actually nothing special about Greek yogurt. It simply has a lower volume of water than the usual stuff. Now, thanks to Mark Bittman at the New York Times, you can turn your regular yogurt Greek, make it as thick as cheese if you want and save money too.
