For those of you who have not had them, Cheese Curds are about the best there is. Maybe I could be coaxed to make some fried curds for the Tug this year. All I would need would be Billy Ray's Catfish Cheek Fryer, and I would be GOOD to go!!

However... you should come to the Cheesy fest to have them in the correct setting!!

I guess I may have to bring some Cheese Curds with me to Ohio....I guess Cheese Curds, Brats and Friday Night Fish Frys are all things that we just take for grantid......and I think I've got an extra 40lbs to show for it!

Make sure sure you guys take lots of pictures!

Hey Mike, as I let you know, I won't be able to make it this year, but hope to next time.

You had better get going on setting up the fried cheese curd fryer. Now you must do this :D :D

Eat some extra ones for me.

Have a good time :)

Ifn they don't squeak then they ain't so fresh. I like em right out of the bag as long as they are fresh. In Quebec they call em poutine when curds, gravy and french fries are melded together (I can't eat that - poutine to me is totally different).

Now mind you, having fried cheese curds is something that I ain't never heard of .. but you can pass along the recipe Mike :idea: I would like to try them.

The best way to eat curds is fresh out of the vat, right after the salt has been mixed in. All though I don't know any where you can get them that way any more. I do like them deep fried and fresh out of the bag when less then 2 days old. I think after they've been refrigerated they lose about 50% of there goodness.

There is a little town called Zitteau about 20 minutes from me. A family owned small cheese factory, Union Star, that makes fresh curd you can buy right out of the vat when salt gets mixed in.
I have to be there around 5am to buy it that way

Hey there, Brosie!

Thanks for posting to this thread! I am getting psyched. I have gotten at least three or four folks from fairly local who are coming, so it looks to be a good crowd coming this year.

I'm gonna have to stock up on the Bratwurst for the lunch on Saturday... I can't wait!!!
