Curd

This is a fresh cheese - made today and eaten tomorrow.

Curd is processed Caerphilly cheese.

Our Curds are a fresh white cheese, originally from Wales, but made with variations all over the world. This is a fresh cheese - made today and eaten tomorrow - and this means that it has little acid development.

It is white with a noticeable milky flavour and this flavour is maintained for about six days after. Then it disappears as the cheese begins to develop into a harder cheese.

Serving and Storage

It is a great cheese to cut, presenting a clean and even surface and is ideal for a topping on biscuits with olives, capers or salmon.

Curd cheese is Caerphilly cut into long fingers of cheese. It is the basis of the famous French Canadian Poutein but can used in a number of dishes here.

It makes an excellent base for a cheese cake or can be added into stews and soups to give a special flavour and consistency.

When very fresh it will "squeak" on the teeth due to a low Ph value and this is used in Canada as indication of freshness.

Curd cheese has a short shelf life of five to seven days and must be kept cool (4 degrees celcius). It is best to buy on the day of manufacture and the Evansdale Cheese Factory will deliver this cheese on a day to day basis.
