Learn how to make a cold room in your basement for about 400 bucks!
A cold room is a new term for a root cellar in the basement. Cold rooms and/or root cellars are for keeping food supplies at a low temperature and steady humidity.
After the harvest, store your vegetables in the root cellar in the autumn.
A secondary use for the root cellar is a place to store wine or home-made alcoholic beverages.
Vegetables stored in the root cellar primarily consist of potatoes, turnips, and carrots. Fun fact: a potato cellar is sometimes called a potato barn or potato house.
Other food supplies placed in the root cellar over the winter months include beets, onions, jarred preserves and jams, salt meat, salt turbot, salt herring, winter squash, and cabbage.
