How To Start A Customized Root Cellar Storage System
Root cellars are normally for keeping food supplies that need low temperature and steady humidity. They keep food from freezing during the winter and keep food cool during the summer months to prevent spoilage. Typically, a variety of vegetables are placed in the root cellar in the autumn, after harvesting. A secondary use for the root cellar is as a place in which to store wine or home-made alcoholic beverages.
Vegetables stored in the root cellar primarily consist of potatoes, turnips, and carrots. Other food supplies placed in the root cellar over the winter months include beets, onions, jarred preserves and jams, salt meat, salt turbot, saltherring, winter squash, and cabbage. A potato cellar is sometimes called a potato barn or potato house. This DIY project is great for any size root cellar, I am so glad I have this chance to share this with you as I am considering building a root cellar and needed to see how to utilize the space.
