Traditional Yal, Turkish Dog Food Recipe Request

A call out to gather some traditional Turkish 'yal' recipes and any trivia associated with regional or seasonal yal makings.

Yal in a letter
From a 1982 letter written to Natalka Czartoryska

Yal is a gruel that is prepared and fed to Turkish shepherd's dogs. With all the changes there are in nutrition criteria, there's still benefit to be had by learning about the traditional recipes and their regional variations.

Shepherds Rest Farm has blogged a recipe and cooking instructions for yal.

Thanks for the great comment regarding ASD diet in Turkey, including all the foods they might consume in additional to Yal!

In regard to longevity, I understand that the working dogs in Turkey are lucky to live to be 2 years old, since they really do have ongoing encounters with large predators. So any studies in their country of origin regarding diet, as it relates to longevity, would be almost impossible.
