Halloumi is the cheese which you will find broiled in a Cypriot, Greek or Middle Eastern mesa. Instead of melting on heating, Halloumi cheese simply hardens. Our Mt Vikos Halloumi is from Pafos on Cyprus and is made from fresh sheep's and goat's milk.
The cheese is made in small batches. The curds are hand-filled into individual molds and turned by hand. After an initial cooking, each cheese is hand-folded into a half-moon shape after a sprinkling of local mint is added.
Halloumi can be grilled as an appetizer, but when you serve it with honey it becomes a delicious dessert.
Ingredients: Pasteurized sheep's milk, salt, microbial rennet, mint
