Hangop with Fruit at Sterk Staaltje

Although I tend to cook a lot, sometimes I simply can’t find the time to drop by at the supermarket or simply don’t feel like it. This is when Sterk Staaltje often comes to the rescue. The store, run by a nice couple is a paradise for food lovers in a hurry. Opening daily at 8am it offers everything you need for a breakfast, lunch or dinner.

You can find me at Sterk Staaltje most often in the mornings. Whenever milk or yoghurt ran out, it’s just a 2 minute walk to get some. And then quite often, I change the yoghurt for a bit of ‘Hangop met Fruit’. Hangop is a typical Dutch dessert, although Lin and me usually eat it in the mornings. It’s a creamy, very rich, strained yoghurt that also has vanilla. And it’s just… super delicious!

If your in the neighborhood, be sure to drop by at Sterk Staaltje (located on the Staalstraat 12) and get some Hangop with Fruit, or some of the other delicacies they all make themselves in the kitchen in the back of the store. Ready-made sandwiches, lasagnes, the best salads in town, it’s all super good!

Or, if your not in town anytime soon and still want to get a taste of handop, use the recipe below to get your own.

  • 1 liter full-fat yoghurt (yup, don’t do this if you’re on a diet)
  • clean kitchen towel (not a cheese cloth, you really need a towel)
  • seeds of a vanilla bean (please, don’t use extract)
  • sugar

Wet the kitchen towel, so that it’s just a bit humid. Next, put a colander in a big bowl. Pour the yoghurt in, put it in the fridge and leave it there for a night. The following morning, get the yoghurt from the fridge and get rid of the juice that came out. Add the vanilla seeds and some sugar (how much really all depends on your taste). Done!

Then, combine it with some fruit; strawberries, blue berries, raspberries, pineapple, mango, anything.
