It has been so hot, I don’t want to cook or eat anything too heavy. A good latvian dish is “skabputra”. If you like plain kefir, or plain yogurt, you might want to try this!
Latvian Sour Cream Soup (Skaba Putra) – a hot summer delight. Barley is cooked until tender (in water with no spices, no salt). To lukewarm cooked barley add buttermilk, milk and leave it to ferment in a warm place for about 6-12 hours. Afterwards it is chilled for 6-12 hours and sour cream is added before serving.
Can be served by itself or with sandviches, etc.
