Making halloumi Cheese with photo
« on: March 06, 2012, 01:38:26 am »
I made the halloumi cheese from Recipe Community.  It is time consuming but well worth it. I found the brine mixture to be a little salty so I'll reduce that next time. Initially the cheese is very soft but firms up in the brine.
I'll post some photos soon. (hopefully). I couldn't get rennet so used 4 junket tablets,crushed and dissolved in a tiny bit of water.
This even has the 'squeak' of halloumi. :D

May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Wow!  I had no idea you could make halloumi!  I have made paneer, thanks to Helene's fabulous info on her blog, but will put this on my list for the school holidays.  Thanks Cookie!

Thanks for this link cookie.
Like LellyJ I have made paneer a few times,  But thought Haloumi was in with those other magical products that had the recipes well hidden.
I will give this a try, one I can get the ingredients together.

I have just ordered some rennet from www.cheeselinks.com to make this recipe.  I LOVE holloumi cheese but it is soooo expensive, can't wait to give this recipe a try.
