Curds The Word Posted July 1st.
What are Cheese Curds, this is a very common question asked to us at the farmers markets. Tasting Table did a great job in just a few words.
They’re a critical part of the cheese-making process. Here’s how it works:
① To make cheese, you strain curds, or cheese solids, from whey, the liquid by-product.
② Next, the curds harden and age into the blocks with which you’re familiar.
③ But before cheese fully sets, you can eat the curds, which are wonderful, little gems all their own.
