Additional information:

My family loves having koldskål during the summer time. It's very easy to make and great fun to make it on your own. It is also fresher I guess. The Danes eat their koldskål with kammerjunker Danish summer biscuits. You can find the recipe here.

Ymer is a kind of yogurt like milk. If you can't find ymer where you live, you can substitute it with natural yogurt or Greek yogurt.

Verdict from Daddy FECS? It tasted very good, just like the store-bought ones.

In general, you should just half ymer/yogurt and half buttermilk. I increase the sugar from two tablespoons to 3 tablespoons as it wasn't sweet enough.


This is the Danish store-bought koldskål

Here are the ingredients to make the Danish koldskål: Ymer, buttermilk, egg yolks, vanilla powder, lemon juice and sugar
