cheese curds

A while back there was a lengthy discussion of cheese curds on this forum. Some people were nuts about them, and many of the rest of us had no idea what the heck they were

Since then I've been curious to try some. I was in Wisconsin last week and made a point of visiting a cheesemaker...yum! They were made that morning and had the characteristic squeak of freshness.

We bought two bags, but they were long gone before we made it back east

I swear I would move to Wisconsin just for the cheese...wish I had bought more

It took me years to try cheese curds for the first time and Minnesota is the only state separting me from Wisconsin! I think I avoided them because of the word "curd." It sounded to me like cottage cheese which I'm not that fond of.

Well, a few years ago at the ND State Fair I finally tried them; Wow! Since then we've gotten an A&W Restaurant to come back to town and they have cheese curds on their menu. I make it a point to get some every once in a while.

I LOVE cheese curds. Luckily since I live in WI I can get them fresh every Saturday at the Farmers Market. There is a local cheesemaker that makes white cheddar cheese curds. They are the best. What cheesemaker did you go to? I know a lot of them do mail orders if you want to get more. They are the best when they are really fresh and squeeky but if they are refrigerated you can just let them come up to room temp and they will get their squeek back. I have heard of some people putting them in the microwave for a few seconds to get the squeek back.

The best way(other than fresh and squeeky) I have had them served was beer battered and fried. You know us WI people like our beer and cheese(and bratwurts). Any excuse to have them all in one dish is great. Beer and cheddar soup is another WI YUMMMM!

Cheese curds are absolutely amazing. Seriously. They're hard to come by here in Ohio, though. A few years ago, the local A&W came out with cheese curds, and they were pretty good for fast food fare. Even a little squeaky.

I'm heading to Minnesota late next week, I might have to go trolling for county fairs!

Holy moly........they are so yummy battered and deep fried, but you have to start with good cheese curds first.....none of those fake imitations!

Try them in the microwave for a few sec. then lightly sprinkle with garlic salt!!! Yum!

I always thought Little Miss Muffett was eating cottage cheese! I have never seen cheese curds for sale in my area. I would like to try them at least once.

I have never even heard of cheese curds, I must have missed the other thread. Can we even get this in the UK? I have to say I will have to take all your words for it that it tastes good becuase my first thought was "ewwww it looks like cheese flavoured toffee"
