Ronnybrook Yogurt... and a tip

Part of my Saturday routine is to stop by the Fort Greene Farmers Market. Every week, I stop by Ronnybrook Farm's stand to pick up a container of plain yogurt, and when I know I'll be out of town the next weekend, I pick up two. I cannot tell you how much I love Ronnybrook yogurt. It is so delicious that all other yogurt has started to taste like glue--even former favorite brands like Brown Cow pale in comparison to Ronnybrook.

Ronnybrook is a family-owned farm in upstate New York, which has been in business for 75 years. Their cows are grass-fed and able to roam freely. Knowing that they are a local, animal-friendly and eco-conscious farm makes me like Ronnybrook even more.

Ronnybrook's flavored yogurts are very subtly flavored and not too sweet. I used to buy either the maple or the maple-vanilla flavors, but one day it occurred to me that I could opt for the plain and stir my own maple syrup into the yogurt. The key advantage to this is that I can sweeten it to exactly the amount of maple I crave. Plus, it means that I have plain yogurt on-hand for cooking, which flavored yogurt is no good for.
