Cheese Curd Weekend

Cheese Curd Weekend
October 3-4

Welcome to Cheese Curd Weekend!   Where we’ll have specials on fresh cheese curds from 9 am - 5 pm!!  Plus, visit the Curd Mobile who will be dishing up fried cheese curds – a Wisconsin favorite! 

What do we like about cheese curds?  Everything, right?!  They’re tender and fresh in flavor.  They make a squeaking noise against your teeth when you eat them.  It they don’t squeak, it either isn’t fresh or isn’t real cheese curd.  But if you just need that squeak, you can take steps to get it back. Sometimes putting the curds in the microwave for a few seconds will make them squeak again. They aren't quite the same as a fresh curd, but they are still fun.

Did you know that cheese curds are super rare?  Cheese curds are only available around cheese factories. Why? They’re only good if they’re super fresh, so they can’t really be shipped anywhere. A cheese curd is considered fresh within 12 hours of being made, so you can see why they’re only found near cheese factories in the Midwest.

A cheese curd isn't a special kind of cheese. It's just a young cheddar, one that hasn't been aged at all. These curds are separated from the whey during the cheesemaking process, and instead of being molded for a future cheese wheel, they're sliced up and bagged to be sold right away.

Want to know more about Cheese Curds?  According to the website What's Cooking in America Cheese curds, a uniquely Wisconsin delicacy, are formed as a by-product of the cheese-making process.  Most cheese curd (at least the ones made in Wisconsin) are a cheddar cheese product.  Some can be made from mozzarella, Colby, or Monterey jack cheeses.

Every restaurant, bar, and bowling alley in Wisconsin seems to serve them.  They are usually a monster-sized appetizer, and they compete with French fries as a side order with sandwiches. They are also a favorite at local fairs, festivals, and fishing lodges. It is said that the folks in Wisconsin crave their curds.

History:  Cheese curds are little-known in locations without cheese factories, because they should ideally be eaten absolutely fresh, within hours of manufacture. They have about the same firmness as cheese, but have a springy or rubbery texture. They are usually orange in color and are little nubs of cheese, roughly the size of peanuts, which, if very fresh, squeak when you bite down on them.  The “squeak” is a very high-pitched sound.  Unlike aged cheese, curds lose their desirable qualities if refrigerated or if not eaten with a few days.  The squeak disappears, and they turn dry and salty.  If you find them in supermarkets, they are probably a few weeks old and inedible.  Cheese curds have become so popular that many Wisconsin cheese factories make the curds daily to meet the demand of cheese curd lovers.

Wisconsin is the leading producer of cheese in the United States, with much of Wisconsin’s cheese made at small, family-owned and operated cheese factories.  Cheese making began in Wisconsin around 1840, when word of Wisconsin’s rich farmland spread throughout Europe and the United States.  Settlers from the eastern dairy states of New York and Ohio, as well as immigrants from Switzerland, Germany, and other countries in Europe, brought their traditions of cheese making and secret recipes to Wisconsin.  By 1922, there were more than 2,800 cheese factories in the state. Wisconsin produces over 2 billion pounds of cheese per year, and it’s cheese is considered among the best in the world.
