Keeping things cool with Tahn

It might not be hot where you are, but -- believe me -- Florida is HOT, a good portion of the year.

So, we try to keep things cool - not just with air conditioning and ceiling fans, but with food, too.

Madzoon, plain yogurt, is always in our refrigerator. One of our favorite hot-weather remedies is Tahn, drinkable yogurt.

Tahn is made by adding enough water to the plain yogurt, so that it’s thin enough to drink. Crush a little mint, sprinkle a touch of salt, if you like, and an ice cube.

How simple is that?

  3. I had some Armenian friends when I lived in CA. They would something similar during the summers, only it had cucumber in it. Would that be a family variation on this, or is there a cucumber drink and I'm just not aware of it's name?

    1. There is an Armenian recipe called jajik (jajuk) - more of a cucumber-yogurt soup. Spellings vary greatly among Armenian regions, so it might be called something else as well. In any case, check out the recipe for Jajik: http://www.thearmeniankitchen.com/2009/07/armenian-cucumbers-3000-year-old.html
