Savor this Summer with Sweet and Savory Yanni Grilling Cheese from Karoun

A Healthy and Exotic Way to Eat Off the Grill

(Turlock, California) –July is the official summer grilling month and the perfect time to try Yanni Grilling Cheese from Karoun Dairies, Inc. Karoun Dairies is a producer of handmade cheeses and natural yogurts. Yanni Grillling Cheese (in original recipe and with mint) is a type of traditional Cyprus cheese that was developed thousands of years ago. This traditional cheese, made from a combination of Goat’s and Sheep’s milk, is a semi-firm cheese that looks similar to mozzarella but has a taste and texture that is all its own. It is very low in fat and an excellent source of protein, perfect for any vegetarian diet. You can add Yanni Grilling Cheese as a side dish to a multitude of your grilling favorites to create a truly sweet and savory summer meal.

You will not have to worry about creating a sticky, oozing mess with this cheese because Yanni Grilling Cheese can withstand high temperatures. Instead of melting, it develops a deliciously light golden crust. The secret to Yanni Grilling Cheese is in the cheese-making process. After the curd has separated, it is removed and heated. The heating process toughens the curd, thus giving it those resistant qualities in its final form. It is surprisingly dense with almost no give from a knife, and if you listen carefully, you can hear a slight squeaking as the blade passes through the cheese.

Karoun Dairies’ Yanni Grilling Cheese has a buttery and salty taste that is satisfying all on its own. However, if you want to sweeten things up, you can coat it with a honey or syrupy grilling sauce to give it a dulcet and succulent glazed finish. Savannah Bee Co. produces two honeys, which are ideally suited for cheeses and grilling. Their Cheese Honey is the ideal complement to a variety of salty and creamy cheeses, and their Grill Honey adds a distinctive hint of sweetness when added as a marinade. Feel free to explore your local market for more sweet grilling options, such as Molasses, Brown Sugar, Sorghum, and Agave syrup; there is a whole multitude of succulent sauces to complement Yanni Grilling Cheese. You can also pair it with sweet fruits like watermelon or cantaloupe to give your taste buds a truly divine, nectarous experience.
