How to Make Your Own Cheese Cave
Make your own cheese cave and you'll be able to cure hard cheeses at home! Your 21st century cheese cave won't look as romantic as a stone cave in Europe, with interesting things dripping from the walls. In fact, your "cave" will probably be a repurposed mini-refrigerator. While not as evocative in appearance, your modern cave will do the job accurately and you'll be creating fragrant cheeses. Learn how to prepare hard cheeses in our video, where Tricia makes cheeses in her kitchen. Then follow our directions here and set up your own cheese cave for curing those cheeses at just the right humidity and temperature. Hard cheeses typically need to be cured 60 to 90 days, and with a cheese cave you can maintain the proper environment.
