A New Spice Shelf
I love to cook, my husband loves to cook, my daughter loves to cook. We make most of our meals at home and trade off the cooking duties. I also have a lot of spices. I buy them at the Farmer's Market because they are so much cheaper. They come in large containers, too much to fit in a normal spice jar. This is one of the containers that held chives:
I was lucky enough to find some glass jars at a local thrift store:
I was able to purchase 2 cases for $3.00 per case. That gave me 24 nice glass jars. My clever husband measured the space where I wanted to put them, measured the jars and made me this shelf:
As you can see, I have hand-printed the temporary labels for the jars. We would like to eventually etch the jars. I love my new shelves and it really frees up counter space. The spices are easier to find and they look great in the kitchen.
Thanks for looking.
