Pantry Organization Tour

This week I am opening up my pantry to show you what I keep inside, and how I organize it all.

    Looks great Angi! I like your use of jars. What do you use gelatin for? I’m guessing not a jello mold. ?

    • Angi says:

      Hi Christie! Thank you. 🙂 I actually do make jello sometimes with the gelatin. Fruit juice + gelatin makes a yummy snack that is actually pretty good for you. I also use it to make a no-bake cheesecake recipe, and I occasionally add some to my hot drinks for more protein. It is pretty flavorless on its own.

    I love your big jars, where do you find them?

    I generally find lots of interesting-looking glass jars of different sizes at yard sales for a very low price. It doesn’t matter to me if they match; I kind of like the fact that they don’t. I label even obvious stuff like oatmeal and corn meal, however, for a very good reason: I also add how much of the grain to add to how much liquid, and how long to cook it. It saves me from looking it up in my recipe file.

      Great idea Mimi! I am kind of a memorization nerd, so I always just go from my memory, but I might need to start doing something like that as my kids get older and begin cooking on there own. 🙂
