Karoun Dairies, based in Sun Valley, CA, specializes primarily in producing traditional all natural Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Hispanic, Indian specialty cheeses and cultured dairy products. Founded in 1992, Karoun is a family-run business. The company has continued to grow from creating hand braided String Cheese for local ethnic and specialty grocery stores, to providing wide variety of Mediterranean specialty cheeses and yogurt products with mainstream distribution. Milk for production of Karoun’s cheeses is sourced directly from local farmers, located within the 30 mile radius of the cheesemaking facility at Turlock in California. Karoun’s Yanni Grilling Cheese with Jalepeno & Spices is a traditional semi-firm Mediterranean grilling cheese with a distinctive layered texture. Inspiration for the recipe comes from the age old Greek tradition of grilling and seasoning cheeses. Flavors are mildly salty with a rich buttery ad spicy finish. It can withstand a tremendous amount of heat without melting, and develops a delicious golden crust when grilled or barbequed. Grilling cheese makes a great addition to salads with arugula, thyme and tomatoes.
