    Does anyone have a recipe for Cheese Curds?

    Now that the garden is done I'm ready to try making cheese. I love cheese curds but, the factory's is always so salty (we use salt very sparingly around here).

    This guy keeps it very simple.
    I bought a book on cheese making and it has scared me to death! I think I need to talk to Miss Prissy about all this. She has great recipes for cheeses and yougurts and all that stuff, Some one out there got a link on Miss Prissy? for this BYCer?

    Thank you for the links. I've read Miss P's reciepes and there are a couple I'm going to try.

    I've never made cheese before either. Funny when you think about it. Over 20 years of dairy farming and the milk has all gone for cheese and yet I know very little about the process.

    PeeperKeeper-If you go to the Egg, Chicken, & Other Favorite Recipes category you will find a recipe index stickied. Miss P's recipes are in there as well as many others that have been posted on this site. I checked a book out of the library on cheese making and it scared me. I put it down and returned it. I will work with the recipes I can get from here and BYCows, at least until I know a little more about it!
