Cheese Curds

To follow-up on the cheese curds question of a couple of months ago, yes, the Saturday Pasadena Farmer's Market's Cheese Vendor does carry cheese curds. On Saturday she had curds from Jack cheese, as well as a garlic and pepper-jack version. I bought the pepper jack version and it was darn tasty with my Sunday breakfast of scambled eggs. It costs $4 for a good amount (6-8 oz. is my guesstimate). She said that they "squeak" when they come to room temperature, have not tried that yet. All her cheeses are made from Jersey Cow's milk and her other cheeses are delicious as well (Caraway Jack (my fave), Italian, Garlic, Giana, Quark, etc). She gives tastes which is a nice touch. She is not there every week, but said something about coming whenever they have room for her (there are a lot of regular vendors who were not there on Saturday, so I am guessing she will be there quite often during the coming months).
