I mentioned Straus Family Creamery back in my Mt. Tam post as providing the milk that goes into Cowgirl Creamery cheese. Besides that, of course, they also make milk and other dairy products, like yogurt. Ryan very kindly brought some SFC whole-milk Eurostyle yogurt to dinner the other day as an unexpectedly awesome component of a shopping list for chickpea curry. The curry is supposed to be served with yogurt, and I didn’t have any, so I asked if he would bring some.
I usually get TJs French Village rBST-free fat-free yogurt when I do buy yogurt (which is rare these days), but let me tell you, although I like the TJs yogurt, the SFC yogurt is AMAZING. It is fresh-tasting, tangy without being sour, and rich without being overwhelming.
I <3 Straus Family Creamery. I think I'm going to have to start making the extra effort and expense of getting their dairy products when I do eat dairy. I really, really want to support them.
