    Hi everyone,

    I just got back from France where my host introduced me to the "Lait Caille".

    She used to drop small pills of "Caille-Lait" in milk to make it.
    I am back in California and I dont know what is the name of Caille-Lait in english nor do i know where to buy the pills.

    Could anyone help me ?
    Thank you.

    Literally it means curdled milk. So it would be yogurt made from sheep's milk?
    But you said pills. Someone else may probably have a better answer.

    Here is a free translation site. I find that it comes in handy.

    yes, the translation is correct and I would agree, it was like yogurt, but I don't think it was yogurt.
    I saw my friend doing it.
    she warmed milk until she could not put her finger in the milk, dropped the pills (lait caille pills) to coagule the milk, left it in the oven for 10-15 mins and them move it to the fridge.

    I really would like to find similar pills in the us as from what she tells me, the pills are the one ingredient that transform milk to that yogurt feel.

    I have a feeling the pills were probably renet pills. Sold here under the name junket.

    Lait caille is curdled milk - literally the curd. It is also known as Junket in some places (it was very popular in England as a dessert or snack art one time).

    Your friend in France added a 'culture' to her heated milk to produce this. It may or may not neccesarily have been rennet though.

    I make it at home the old fashioned way, over a period of 2-3 days without adding any culture to the milk.

    Hi.. I. Have just read that there is a vegetable rennet made with a herb called chivers among other names. I think this is available in a pill form and am going to start looking for it now!
