From Tamara (Cyder with Eloise), in Cambridgeshire, England:
My key storage jar (with the red lids!) is from a local supermarket tomato purée. I buy it in bulk more for the jar than for the contents. I have become obsessed with building up my spice cupboard in these jars as I find the conventional jars too small.
One day (when I buy a house) I am going to make a spice rack to fit all these jars, then they will free up cupboard space. I buy all my spices in bulk as I use so much it is a whole lot cheaper.
Renting a house causes storage problems as I can see so many ways I could improve my kitchen but I am limited, for example check out the wall paper in one of the cupboards, what were they thinking!
Like Candelaria [Other People's Pantries #114] I also buy my rice in bulk, so I use kilner jars to store it in. There are also two packs of ready made instant custard in this cupboard -- they are my husband's guilty pleasure -- honest.
As you can see I have laid it all bare, I didn't tidy a thing for you -- this is how I live, but this is when I'm at my happiest in my kitchen.
I would also like to share with you a photo of my grandmother's pantry.
I think I have always aspired to a real pantry like hers since I was very little.
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
Come on -- show us your pantry.
