After enzymes have been added to fresh milk and allowed to set up, the whey is drained off leaving beautiful fresh curds behind. It's these curds that are then pressed together to create cheese.
At Face Rock, they pull some of these curds aside so that you can enjoy one of the most delightful treasures we've ever tasted-- Fresh Cheese Curds!
Curds are best when served at room temperature or slightly warmed (5 - 10 seconds in the microwave would do it!) Enjoy them battered and fried, chopped up and mixed into soup or simply as a snack on their own!
