      Title: String cheese
 Categories: Armenian
      Yield: 1 Servings
      1 lb Mozzarella curd
           Mahleb (Middle Eastern
           Black caraway seeds
  Place cheese in a Teflon saucepan and add a dash of mahleb and salt
  and a sprinkling of black seeds. Heat on low until cheese is melted
  thoroughly. Remove from heat and drain excess water.
  Pick up hot cheese in a lump, and make a hole in the center to
  resemble a doughnut.
  With both hands, stretch and turn the cheese to form a large loop.
  Double the strand of cheese, making two strands of cheese of even
  length. Repeat, stretching and looping; the more you stretch the
  stringier the cheese becomes. Repeat stretching several times. Twist
  ends in opposite directions and intertwine rope into a braid. Place
  one end through the loop of the other to lock it.
  Set cheese aside to dry thoroughly. Wrap in plastic wrap and
  refrigerate or freeze.
  To serve, open braid, cut one loop and pull cheese apart into thin
  strands. Serve with pocket bread.
  NOTE: Mahleb can be found at specialty food shops that sell Middle
  Eastern ingredients.
