Cheese CurdsCheese curds are big in Milwaukee. You can eat them plain or fried. They may feel like Silly Putty but taste a whole lot better! (Warning, thought, they squeak when you eat them.) Cheese curds are made when milk is pasteurized, then an enzyme (rennet) is added to form a custard-like substance. The liquid is then separated as the mixture is heated; the resulting product is the curd. 960 1280
