“This is a very tasty treat that comes from Vietnam. Sweet and tart at the same time. The texture of this is yogurt is very different from your average yogurt. It has the same appearance and smell from your same plain yogurt. You don't stir this type of yogurt when you eat it. I don't know how long this takes to turn out, but when I do the last hot bath I leave it overnight.”
