Fried Cheese Curds
We put our squeeky spin on this recipe from Simple Comfort Food. Fried + Cheese = delicious!

There seems to be a little confusion as to where poutine was first invented. Regardless, whoever came up with this gravy smothered mound of deliciousness is a culinary genius in my eyes!

Cheese Curd Quesadilla

Can anyone tell me why the recipe states: "We start out bringing 2 Gallons of milk up to a temperature of 96F and the timer is set for 90 minutes
to measure the critical process from ripening through scald, Since this is the part of the recipe that is most important and must run by the clock." ?
Do I need to wait 90 minutes at 96F before adding the starter (the next step)? Does the 90 minutes include the 30 minutes of ripening, the 18-25 minutes of setting and then the 30 minutes of bringing up to 116F?
I want to make these this weekend but I don't want to screw them up.
