    Wow, great article. Really shows how the internet brings the world that much closer together.

    jennifer, what a great post! i’m totally going to try making mansaf. i bet you can get the sun dried yogurt at the middle eastern grocer on foster in andersonville.

    Hey! there is a link to my blog…kick a$$.

    Here is a tip for you, not only did Jordanians manage to dry yogurt, they reconstituted it, packaged it and shipped it overseas. I once saw “liquid jameed” at the Middle Eastern store in Salt Lake. How good is it? Dunno. Always had ample supply of the one and only rock-style jameed, but the owner of the shop swore by it…but then he’s the owner.

    Thanks all for kind comments. Thanks to Roba, too, for being a great sport and for helping out. . . Sarita Bonita, let us know how the mansaf works out.

    Oh wow, this is so cool. I’m an american whos parents are from Jordan. Grew up on Mensaf and just to let you guys know, there is a cool traditio in the way you eat this.

    In the large round tray that it is in, people stand around it and eat the mansaf with one hand (and only one hand). its an old tradiation but its still done, at least in my family, hehehe.

    Jameed (Iyas), by the way the liquid jameed is really good. but my mom adds some more dried yogurt to it.

    Linda, we actually don’t use Jameed at all(although I love it). We only use yogurt. My mom thinks Jameed smells like sheep. So there you go, the difference between a Mansaf Nabulsi and a Mansaf Karaki. My friend Sarah(who’s from Karak), always invites me to lunch when they cook Mansaf.

    My husband is from Jordan and I’d really like to find a source of real Jordanian jameed here in the U.S. – Sarita Bonita posted above that she found liquid Jameed at a Middle Eastern store in Salt Lake – I live in Utah – was it here? And if so do you remember which store? Anyone else with suggestions of where I can get mail order liquid jameed or “rock” jameed? Thanks so much! (I’m an American who loves Mansaf, too!)
