How can I keep the humidity up when maturing cheeses?

by Kelsey

Keeping the humidity up when maturing cheese can be difficult, especially if you are maturing cheeses in a large fridge which can dry the cheese out.

For the small scale cheesemaker, the best way to keep up the humidity is by using a Mad Millie Maturing Box. These airtight containers with a rack at the bottom ensure the humidity stays high while air can circulate around the cheese while it matures.
