Looks wonderful! I don’t know what quark is but I will google it. You are a fabulously patient grandma. Jyri will always remember your kindness.

Yes, I took up Ruth Rodgers’ direction and googled “Quark”. Quite helpful.

Here in the U.S. I think a very mild plain yogurt strained through cheesecloth might be a tasty alternative.

The nurturing and respectful communication between Grandma Anna and grandson Jyri was beautiful to observe. Thank you for sharing your rich dessert and your rich family life, Anna.
