I’ve been gradually buying new jars to store the random packets of spices and spice mixes that are lying round in what might loosely be described as our spice cupboard.
I’ve also been replacing some of the old jars (jam jars, tomato paste jars, coffee jars) with the new ones for no reason other than that I quite like the idea of all the jars being the same (or at least similar).
And finally, I took great delight tonight in emptying several jars that contained completely unidentifiable spices or spice mixes into the bin. I have no idea what these were, and have a feeling I’ve had them for more than five years. I figured if I’ve had no need for them in that time, I’m not going to now. Plus they’re going to be well past their best-by date.
Into the bin!
The re-jarring project will continue for a bit longer, but after that the next step will be to create some steps or something in the cupboard so I can actually see what I have and find what I need without having to pick up every jar. I’m thinking labels on the jar lids as well as the jars themselves might help here.
So that was my well-spent Sunday night. How was yours?
