Making Cheese Curds
Q. With my first batch of curd cheese, the finished curds are not firm and rubbery and there is no squeak.
A. Once made, Cheese Curds only squeak for a short time. When you put them in the fridge, they no longer seem squeaky after a few days. That's why they're best eaten fresh. If they aren't squeaky when eaten fresh, you may have left too much moisture in the final cheese.
