Other People's Pantries #68
From Candy, in Boston, Massachusetts:
I have two pantry storage spots that keep me organized. First, I have a professional tool chest on wheels, purchased from a dealer who fills warehouses with industrial cast-offs.
This tool chest came from Emerson Electric when they moved their manufacturing center to Mexico. It has drawers for my knives, silver, spices, and baking needs. I use two of the drawers for spices.
The thinner drawer holds the typical spice bottles, while the deeper one holds glass containers with cork stoppers. These containers hold the spices for Indian and South East Asian cooking.
My pull-out rack for larger pantry items comes from Germany, and is fabulous for holding anything I need. I store dried figs to pasta to peanut butter to dried mushrooms, clouds ears, grains, and canned coconut milk.
I also have (not shown) two large shelves for polenta, rice, honey, chocolate, hot sauces, salts, peppers, etc.
Thank you all for showing your pantries from around the world! It is fun to peek into all your cupboards and drawers.
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
Come on -- show us your pantry.
*Other People's Pantries was going to end early in 2009, to make way for a new Saturday feature. However, pantry photos continue to roll in, so I'll keep featuring them on Saturdays, in the order in which I receive them, for a while longer. If you've been thinking about sharing photos of your own pantry, now's the time to send them.
