Cyprus Halloumi

Paphos - Cyprus Tradition

Halloumi or haloumi is a traditional Cypriot cheese that is also popular in Middle East and Greece, and is now made in many countries and regions around the world.

Cyprus Halloumi is made from a mixture of goat's and sheep milk, although some halloumi can be bought that also contains cow's milk. It has a high melting point, and so can easily be fried or grilled. Halloumi is set with rennet, and is unusual in that no acid or acid-producing bacterium is used in its preparation.

A rich source of calcium, haloumi also contains potassium and zinc, and is a great low-fat option.

Halloumi cheese originated in Cyprus and was initially made during the Medieval Byzantine period, subsequently gaining popularity throughout the rest of the Middle East region. Industrial halloumi contains more cow's milk than goat and sheep milk. This reduces the cost but changes the taste and the grilling properties.

Because it maintains its shape when cooked, haloumi can be baked, fried or grilled until the outside becomes crisp and golden and the inside melts slightly. Haloumi can also be used without any cooking preparations just cut in salads or at sandwiches. You can add halloumi at your pizza as well.Try also eating fresh haloumi with wedges of watermelon for a delicious snack.

The cheese is white, with a distinctive layered texture, similar to mozzarella, and has a salty flavour. It is stored in its natural juices with salt-water, and can keep for up to a year if frozen below −18 °C (0 °F) and defrosted to +4 °C (39 °F) for sale at supermarkets. It is often garnished with mint to add to the taste. Traditionally, the mint leaves were used as a preservative, the use serendipitously discovered when the fresh Halloumi was kept wrapped for freshness and flavour from the mint leaves. Hence, if you look closely, many packaged Halloumi will have bits of mint leaf on the surface of the cheese.
