Other People's Pantries #139
From Rae (Ravenous Rae), in Fayetteville, North Carolina:
I just moved into this lovely house with a lovely kitchen. The pantry is not the most accessible due to a door frame around it and a louvered door on it. I still use the pantry, but since it's hard to get to, I use the pantry for items I do not use on a daily basis.
The top shelf is for soups. The next shelf is for canned tomatoes, beans, salsas, and a few miscellaneous items in the corner that are very rare occurrences in cooking. The third shelf has canned veggies, and extras of things I use a lot and want to keep on hand so I never run out.
Since I don't use the pantry that much, I use the kitchen cabinets. Above the sink is a pass through window to the living room. I use the shelves for veggies that do not need to be in the fridge. On the right hand side shelves I store tea, and on the shelves to the left is salt, pepper, and hot sauce!
The large cabinet is the one I use the most. It has nuts, nut butters, cereals, oats, etc. It's mostly breakfast items (I love breakfast!) but a few other frequently used things in there too. I use a small cabinet for baking items, such as sucanat, cocoa powder, and specialty flours.
On Saturdays, for more than two years, we've been peeking into Other People's Pantries all around the world.

And, please put your camera to work on Market to Pantry, alternating on Saturdays with Other People's Pantries. There are five more markets to share.
