Glass Jars for Storage

We save empty, washed glass jars with lids, such as peanut butter jars. These jars, that have a 2 cup capacity (approximate), make convenient storage containers for grains, yeast, and other dry ingredients. Use your imagination.

We buy peanut butter (without any added ingredients) by the case from food co-ops. We save the cardboard cases for use in storing the cleaned, dry jars. These come in handy when we buy grains in quantity, also from food co-ops.

To prevent rancidity, we store our glass jars containing sesame seeds and flaxseeds in the freezer. These jars can have either plastic or metal lids. However, we have found that ingredients that are stored at room temperature such as oats, rice, spelt, wheat, dried beans, etc. keep best in jars with metal lids that have rubber seals. (This discourages any infestation or spoilage.)

The nice thing about using these jars is that they can be washed and used over and over again.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
