Would You Try Mongolian Fermented Horse Milk? | Great Big Story
If you’re a fan of kefir and yogurt, you might be excited to try ‘airag’, a traditional Mongolian drink made from fermenting mare’s milk.
The process has remained largely unchanged since the 13th century, and the fermentation process gives it a slightly sour taste with an alcohol content of over 2%. So, maybe this one’s not for your breakfast table…
It’s hard to find outside of Mongolia, but Beryl Shereshewsky has tracked it down for a taste-test.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this video possible!
