We slowly run out of our Greek products: the yoghurt and pistachios. I am a bit sad of this because I really like the pistachios we bought on the island of Aegina. It would be nice to have continuous supply from the island. If you want something sweet for a quick snack or something delicious for breakfast, make this dessert. Not only does it taste amazing, this dessert is so simple to make you hardly need a recipe. Both yogurt and honey are great for the digestive system, and the combined tastes are so yum.
Did you know that Greek yogurt (yiaourti) has been around for thousands of years? Yogurt itself might be as old as 10000 years, which is much older than the oldest Greeks. It didn’t get popular outside Greece until the first wave of Greek emigration to Western Europe and the US after World War I.
