While the origins of cheese are unknown, ancient people used cheese as a way to store milk for the winter that they had from the spring. Today, cheese is made from good bacteria and rennet that have been added to pasteurized milk. The formed curds and whey are cut and then heated. The whey is drained out and the curds are salted, pressed and aged cheeses are cured.
