Act 105

Dry goods that live in glass jars don’t go to stone

Sure, a bit of a stretch there – but a quick word to suggest that putting dry goods in sealed glass jars means your food lasts longer and you can easily see what you’ve got to work with. Plus, glass is better than plastic.

Canning jars are cost effective and very useful for all manner of goods in your pantry. Herbs, spices, sugar, flour, chocolate chips, what have you.

Buy a grease pen at your local stationers (mine cost $1.30). Date and ID the content (I always get paprika and chili powder mixed up otherwise) and make the most of your inventory.

Bon appetit mes amis!
