  • Cheese Curds

    I just got my latest delivery - CHEESE CURDS. Got a bag of white and yellow curds.

    One of my consultants has a client in Wisconsin so every few months when he goes to visit them, he brings me curds back. He even got one of the guys from our Washington DC office hooked on them.

    They're so fresh they squeak. They are awesome. A little bit a heaven from home. Now if I could just get him to bring me some lake perch I could die a happy woman.

    Kelly-- being a country girl from the south I am not sure what curds are- I was always taught they were cottage cheese. Now will you please explain to me just what are Curds--and curds and whey __

      Sharon,

      Curds are the solid thats left when you separate the solids and the liquids in cheese making. Yes, curds and whey.

      The curds are just "rough" cheese that hasn't been pressed and aged into cheese.

      They are quite delicious. Some find them a bit salty but I happen to love them, being from Wisconsin and all.

        Still sounds like cottage cheese to me- and it probably is... you know we talk a little funny down south

          I am not all that fond of cottage cheese but it is probably because my parents used to like it so much and us kids had to eat it so often.
          But I still do enjoy some of it mixed into a nice big lasogna caserole where it takes on a new flavor.. Yummm . . .

              The curds can be picked out of your keyboard but the whey could give you a problem that you couldn't get to the bottom of.

                Cheese curds are a delicious treat! I love em too, and yes, fresh ones squeak when you bite em!!! At the county fairs now, one of the big things is deep fried cheese curds, which are also really good.An interesting read if anyone wants... http://www.doorbell.net/tlr/cheesecd.htm If you need some, I can always ship you some Kelly!!!

                    Yes Dale , thanks from here too for pointing out the difference.
                    So that is one form of cheese I had never heard about or seen or tried .
                    I will keep on the look out when I go east again because there is a cheese factory that I have bought excellent cheese from and they will surely fill me in if they can supply me with some curds to try..

                      All this talk of cheese curds and no one has mentioned poutine.

                      Frenchfries covered with cheese curds and smothered in gravy. It is true French Canadian quisine.

                      I can feel my arteries hardening as I dream of it.

                      so we have cheese curds, cottage cheese and ricotta cheese, all similar yet subtly different.
                      Think of it as the difference between walnut, black walnut and english walnut.

                        LOL I was just going to say the same thing about poutine when I read your post, Carl.

                        Must admit I haven't yet plucked up the courage to try poutine - I like the constituent ingredients but together sounds like grease overload ... I get enough fat from Timmies donuts and the breakast sausage sandwiches...

                          Sorry Carl.

                          I like my fries nekkid. Nothing but maybe a little tartar sauce or ketchup once in a while.

                          But cheese curds and GRAVY on french fries - YUCK!

                            ahh yes french fries, when I was stationed in Germany the local thing there was schnitzel and a side order of pomefritz mit mayo (french fries with mayonaise) and to this day I still prefer mayo on my fries

                              Ahh,

                              Poutine: A native meal!

                              Fries, curds and BBQ sauce, (or Gravy, but I prefer BBQ sauce, similar to the one that comes with an order of chicken or a hot chicken sandwich)

                              You also can have Italian Poutine: change the BBQ sauce for Spaghetti sauce (not my cup of tea)


                              And at least try it before saying yuck to poutine, or to any food for that matter.

                              How the heck can you know you won't like it until you've tried it? I Never could figure that one out. If someone tells you it's poison, you'd be dumb to try it, but if someone told you it's good, it's as bad to say you don't like it without having tasted it.
