Cheese Curds, tasty little bits of fresh cheese perfect for a quick snack

Cheese curds are the fresh curds of cheese, often cheddar. Their flavor is mild with about the same firmness as cheese, but has a springy or rubbery texture. Fresh curds squeak against the teeth when bitten into, which some would say is their defining characteristic. The American variety are usually yellow or orange in color, like most American cheddar cheese. Other varieties, such as the Qubcois and the New York varieties, are roughly the same color as white cheddar cheese.

After twelve hours, even under refrigeration, they have lost much of their “fresh” characteristics, particularly the “squeak”. Room temperature, rather than refrigeration, may preserve the flavor and the “squeak”.

You can freeze cheese curds for up to 4 months, be aware you will loose the squeak and freshness when eaten after freezing.

Cheese Curds are sometimes breaded and deep fried especially in Wisconsin.

Cheese curds are a main ingredient in Poutine, a Quebec dish in which cheese curds are served layered on top of french fries, and melting under steaming hot gravy.

    These cheese curds are everything they promised to be and more. It’s been a long time since I’ve had cheese curds that actually still squeak and I was surprised that even after being frozen, these cheese curds gave me that satisfying squeak that I’ve come to miss so much! This is a huge bag of cheese curds for a very low price, so I’ve personally kept them frozen and just take out the amount needed just before serving them. They thaw pretty quickly, and if you need them to thaw faster you can pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds without them melting.
