What to use to raise cheese while ripening?
« on: November 30, 2013, 02:09:09 PM »
I've got the cheese mats, and ripen the cheese on these on top of little circular plastic cutters (for cutting out biscuits!)
These are a) a bit high (1cm+) and b) don't fit the base of my plastic tubs (clip-lock)
Any suggestions on what I could use to raise the mats about half a cm and that I can cut to fit the tubs?
Assume it needs to be food grade?
thanks!

What about buying a bottle of washing-up liquid in the old-style white cylindrical bottle and after using the liquid wash out and cut a hoop to the height you want?

Any use?

Here's a photo of the mats I use to keep them up off of the shelves.  The bottom black mat is a flooring mat square you can buy at any restaurant supply store.  I put the bamboo mat on top of that and the plastic mesh over that.
