It is unknown where exactly yogurt originated though it is thought that the Arabs, Turks, or Persians are responsible. You can make your own yogurt at home with only milk and a bit of yogurt. Very easy, no yogurt maker required. I have been making it for a few years and know that anyone can make this. It makes great yogurt especially if you use whole milk; very creamy and thick. You can use nonfat milk but it is a little thin and the consistency isn't that great compared to with more fat. It is best to go with 2% or whole. I also use organic milk, I find the flavor to be more full and sweet.I found it in an Arabic cookbook. Here is a step by step tutorial I have made including photos: http://xeniahome.blogspot.com/2010/03/homemade-yogurt-middle-eastern-way.html
