An Icelandic cultured-milk product. Made with skimmed ewes' or cows' milk with bacterial cultures and rennet added. When the mixture has curdled, the whey is drained off, and the curds become the skyr. This is used in the way we might use yoghurt. A similar preparation was probably made in northern parts of ancient Britain and Scandinavia.
