Hi Joe,

As long as you don't have to heat it. If it's for something that is served cold, line a seive with paper towels or cloth and let the yogurt drain for a while until it gets thick. In cooking, substitute a high fat cream that is 33-36% fat.

I'm thinking there might be a cultured cream product in Malta. In French it's known as creme fraiche.

Karen

If you have access to any cultured milk product, like creme fraiche or buttermilk, all you need to do to make your own is add some of the cultured product to light or heavy cream and let it sit at cool room temp. (70 degrees F) for 18 to 24 hours.

You can also buy powdered milk cultures from cheesemaking companies on the Internet (I don't know about shipping, though).
It has to be "milk cultures" not yogurt cultures, they are different beasties.

A great site for looking up info about food including substitutions.

http://www.foodsubs.com/Cultmilk.html

Excerpt.

sour cream To make your own: See Homemade Sour Cream posted on Kurma.net, or see the recipe for Vegan Sour Cream posted on the Veggie Table. Substitutes for one cup: Blend one cup cottage cheese plus two or three tablespoons milk or buttermilk plus two tablespoons lemon juice OR blend equal parts cottage cheese and plain yogurt OR blend one cup cottage cheese plus one-third of a cup buttermilk plus one tablespoon lemon juice. (Adapted from directions in the Joy of Cooking by Marion Rombauer Becker and Irma Rombauer. See my sources.) OR blend one cup cottage cheese plus two tablespoons lemon juice plus two tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise plus one-fourth cup nonfat buttermilk (adapted from a recipe in the New Laurel's Kitchen Cookbook) OR Combine 7/8 cup buttermilk or yogurt plus three tablespoons butter or margarine (From a Gateway Virginia recipe. See my sources.) OR one cup buttermilk OR one cup well-drained yogurt (if making cheesecake, use whole milk yogurt) OR one cup sour milk OR let stand for 5 minutes: one cup evaporated milk plus one tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar OR jocoque OR smetana (lower calories)
