I've no idea how authentic they are, but what I've seen people at events put curds in a muslin bag, then squish the water out with your hands initially, then pressed between two flat wooden boards. The curds were then dried out *in* the bag. Someone mentioned that drying it out in a smokehouse might be nice and sterile.

Not to mention tasty.
Applewood smoked cheese is nice stuff.
