Quick Halloumi Cheesemaking Recipe with Cow's Milk

Make halloumi cheese at home in one hour! This recipe is best made with cow's milk but can also be made with goat or sheep milk. If using goat's milk, it is recommended to purchase calcium chloride, as the protein chains in goat milk are a little weaker and may need the additional binding properties of calcium chloride (1/4 teaspoon per 1/2 gallon). 

Halloumi or haloumi is a semi-hard, unripened cheese traditionally made from a mixture of goat's and sheep's milk in Cyprus, Greece. It can sometimes be made with cow's milk, as we'll be doing in our class. It has a high melting point and so can easily be fried or grilled. This property makes it a popular meat substitute and is wonderful served alongside grilled vegetables and meats for your next backyard BBQ.
