Jibneh (Syrian Style Cheese)

Share |
Price: $14.95
Item Number: JIB101
What is Jibneh? Jibneh simply means cheese in Arabic. Jibneh is made from curd that is seasoned with salt and a unique spice called mahleb. Mahleb is derived from the seeds of cherry stones. Cherry stones are cracked to reveal a seed that is ground into this delicious spice. The combination of salt and mahleb create a cheese that is slightly salty, sweet and nutty. One piece is never enough!

Jibneh has a dynamic flavor. Growing up, I can recall eating Jibneh with watermelon and cantaloupe in the summertime. The taste was refreshing and the fruit complimented the firm, salty and nutty flavor of the Jibneh. For lunch, I would spread apricot jelly on a pita and top it with slices of Jibneh for a sweet and salty bite. Jibneh pairs perfectly with sliced tomato and cucumbers in a sandwich or on your favorite bagel. My favorite, and I know soon it will be yours, is Jibneh nestled between pita or on top of sliced french bread toasted in the oven until it is melted, warm and gooey. To add another layer of flavor to Jibneh, sprinkle dried mint and Aleppo pepper on your sandwich before popping it into the oven. The combination of spices adds freshness and depth to melted Jibneh and bread.
