How To Do Estonian Quark Cheese with Caraway Seeds. Sõir.

s6ir (1)Sõir, Estonian Quark Cheese with caraway seeds is very known in South Estonia. And this is my father recipe.
Traditionally was it dish for Midsummer and Pentecost.
Do you know, that in Latvian is cheese – Siers and in Russian сыр. And even in English, cheese sound very similar. So, all these cheeses are related 🙂

Important:
quark must be as dry, as possible. And better is fat-free quark
Ricotta is not alternative to use. Make your quark yourself
Be sure your quark is natural and Do NOT consist gelatine or whatever.

Estonian Milk Soup

Milk Soup

Do Estonians have a comfort food?

I believe that we can call our Milk Soup as comfort food. All our Mothers made a milk soup at night. When the child’s stomach had suddenly become so empty 🙂

Milk soup is very easy to make, it gets ready quickly and as milk is rich of B vitamin, it makes you calm and helps you sleep.

However, this comfort food has sometimes been complicated 🙂
During the Soviet times at school on Mondays we were always served a bowl of milk soup for lunch.  Of course, I hated it:)
In a very popular book called ” Kasuema” by Silvia Rannamaa, which describes the life of a youngster during the 60s, the ” Milk soup Mondays” were compared to Dickens poorhouses 🙂 believe me, despite the fact that this book was very popular it certainly did not help to rise the popularity  of milk soups.
But again, we can call Milk soup a comfort food. On Mondays, you have enough power to start your 🙂 school week.

You can replace pasta with rice, barley, semolina or dumplings. Recipe is the same.
For Dumpling Soup bring milk to boil, reduce heat and add small dumplings. Dumpling recipe you can find here.
