Yogurt - An Ancient Food

 Day 231 of My Italian Learning Journal*

As I look for topics with which to practice Italian, I have been also learning about interesting information. Today is no different. We shopped at a warehouse store and had some yogurt. So tonight I sought to find the origins of yogurt. This milk product is quite old: dating back to the 3rd millennium B.C., when goatherders in what is now Turkey fermented milk in sheep-skin bags to conserve it. The Turkish word yogurt means “to thicken." It is believed that the milk fermented spontaneously when in contact with the bacteria contained in the skin. (Corrections for my Italian grammar in my practice script below are welcome.)
