What are Cheese Curds?
Cheese curds are packaged within hours of manufacture. While urban legends claim they are leftover cheese, in fact, cheese curds are the origianl form of cheese prior to it being packed into wheel- or loaf-shaped forms.
How can you tell Cheese Curds are fresh?
Fresh cheese curds can be identified by their squeak" against the teeth when bitten into. Typically the squeak is lost over a matter of days as the curds age, but for a temporary "squeak renewal, try heating your curds in a microwave for a couple of seconds.
How should Cheese Curds be stored and handled?
Refrigerate cheese curds in the original wrapping until ready to use. If the original wrap is removed, rewrap cheese tightly in a plastic bag with an interlocking seal to prevent air pockets and absorption of other food flavors.
The flavor of most cheese is best when eaten at room temperature, so remove from your refrigerator one to two hours before serving. Cheese can dry out quickly, so do not unwrap or open the cheese until just before it is to be used.
