Other People's Pantries #23
From Laurie (Mediterranean Cooking in Alaska), in Anchorage:
Here's a picture of my pantry. As you can see, it's a walk-in. It used to be a back hallway that made a second entry into the kitchen. We blocked off the hallway, added shelves, and created the pantry. It's so convenient, now I don't know how we managed without it.
The yellow plastic baskets on the right have onions, garlic, shallots, and tomatoes in them. The jars above the baskets hold grains and legumes. The tins on the next shelf hold noodles and pastas. Underneath the yellow baskets are plastic containers with whole herbs and spices. The next bank of shelves over has baking supplies plus company dishes and glassware. The jars on the top right hand side of the shelves on the short end of the pantry contain dried mushrooms from mushrooms gathered off our property. Everything else is pretty obvious.
The best thing about this walk-in pantry is there is an automatic light that comes on when you walk into the pantry and goes out on its own. This allows me to walk in and out of the pantry with my hands full which is the best thing ever.
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
Come on -- show us your pantry.
