Curd Quips: Orange slices worthy to be called American?

Consider first that it’s not cheese-no, not by a long shot. It is manufactured with less than 51 percent cheese, sodium citrate, gelatin and several more compounds. Regulators more commonly classify it as “ “imitation cheese” or “sandwich slices” or “processed cheese food.” Said simply, an industrial product born of need that has a history of building up the country.

Curd Quips- Real deal: Rave reviews for raw milk

Curd Quips: A cheese that’s full of eyes, holes and yes, gas.

Big holes in cheeses like Swiss and Jarlsberg are called “eyes.” The bigger the eyes, the bolder the cheese, goes the saying.
