Other People's Pantries #101
From Julia (Chef Owings), in Sidney, Ohio:
My pantry reflects my heritage of people from the Appalachians and an adopted grandmother from Italy. We have downsized our pantry since we are living right now in a house that is less than one-fourth of our old house.
This is the part of the pantry that is in the TV room. One bookcase holds what few canned vegetables and soups I do buy. Another bookcase is for my condiments and sauces. The closet holds a years worth of pasta sauce and pizza sauce, a case of canned sliced potatoes, a case of canned whole potatoes, salsa and about two months' supply of dried fruits.
Here's part of the baking pantry. This is a rolling kitchen island that I just got. It has paid for itself many times over already. I bake most of our own bread. Make our own noodles also. Coming in to the Christmas season I add cookies, cakes and pies for the family and cookies for the troops through my son's unit.
This is part of the kitchen pantry.
I hang peppers in the window to dry during the winter.
This is the pantry wardrobe that is installed in this house. I keep my home canned goods and pastas and rices in it.
That's a look at part of my pantry, but I also have 3 refrigerators and 1 deep freezer!
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
