DIY Cheese Containers


Note from Shannon: Please welcome Janet Creasy, Cultures for Health Content Writer and Cultured-Kitchen Keeper.

Cheeses finished and drained in small containers are just cute.  It’s a fact.  Think small rounds of goat cheese perfect for displaying on a cheese board. You can find a whole host of cheese molds at the CFH site with every size and shape to suit your fancy.

But you can also reuse some items you might already have in your kitchen. Simply look around and you might find a whole host of things waiting to mold a perfectly cute little mound of cheese.
