Camembert Hoop – half size

$6.00

110mm diameter x 60mm tall

Camembert are surface ripened cheese, meaning they ripen from the outside in.  If your traditional size camembert finishes up at 4cm tall, it will probably take around 4 to 6 weeks to ripen.

The mini camembert hoop produces a final cheese that is less than 1cm tall (probably around 7 or 8mm), so the cheese will ripen faster.  Probably in about 2 weeks depending on the manufacturing variables that you use.
