 Armenian Cheese

Armenians have produced cheese for thousands of years.
The home cheese making traditions were passed on from generation to generation.

Armenian string cheese is a pasta filata similar to mozzarella: the fresh, soft curd is pulled to create long strands.

For KARLACTI string cheeses, the curd is seasoned with mahleb, a Middle Eastern spice made from ground sour cherry pits, and nigella seeds (also known as black cumin or black caraway), which impart a peppery, slightly bitter flavor.

The curd is pulled into a long loop, twisted and stretched numerous times to create the stringy texture. The loop is then twisted tightly and knotted to form a compact shape called a braid.
