Whether you are using colored glass jars to keep your bulk spices organized, or you are giving away home-made food items like jams, jellies or pickles, there are a couple of things you need to keep in mind. One is that the jars need to feature an air tight seal-able lid to keep the freshness and quality up to par. And two, when buying colored glass jars, make sure that they are not just clear jars with tinted film wrap. If this is the case, the film may peel off and that may be something you don’t want happening.

There seems to be hundreds of types of spice racks. I guess this is because we are still trying to find the perfect solution to an enduring problem: how to store all those little spice bottles and jars. If a simple wall mounted traditional rack is unsuitable for whatever reason, then you may want to opt for one of the many in-cabinet or racks on the market today.

Then all you need are inexpensive glass spice jars with lids and the included plastic shaker inserts and you’re all set to cook up a storm.

If you spend any time in the kitchen cooking either for yourself or a whole family, you have probably realized how important it is to have all your spices located in one easy to grab location. Fortunately, there are a few models of spice racks that can be hidden from view but easily accessible when needed. A cabinet door mounted spice rack fits the bill nicely as it keeps your herbs and spices in a centralized location and if you don’t have a lot of counter space, this is a great solution.

Spice racks, the kind that fit inside cabinets, are either of the type that slide out like a drawer, or of the “pull down” variety. Whatever the model or mechanism, these types of racks are great space savers and tidy ways to keep all of your spices in one convenient, easily reachable spot.
