I featured on the Madhur Jaffrey Curry Nation TV show, her great British TV comeback. A nail biting encounter for me with the grand dame of Indian Cooking…

How To Store Spices
June 28th, 2014 at 8:57 am
I wash out jam jars, my husband makes a label and we use them for our spices!

I used to use those Bonne Mamman jam jars – they fit perfectly in my kitchen drawer so I used to stick a label on top of the red gingham lids. It was a brilliant way to store and see where everything was too. Alas, we moved and the drawers in the new kitchen are shallower so the jars don’t fit… Now I use little Kilner clip top jars in various sizes. They are in a wall cupboard and I have to shift lots of bottles around to get to what I want!

Hi Boon, good thinking! I tried that with empty coffee containers but soon got a higgledly piggledy collection of jars!!
Hi Selma, I know what you mean with moving bottle around! And I forgot to mention I don’t label spices, so dhania, jeera and garam masala often get opened for a big whiff before use :-/

Ditto for the higgledy piggledy collection of jars – except mine is a mix of baby food and jam jars – and for the big whiff before use. Husband begs me to figure out what is what and label’em so he can cook in peace but hey, 25 days a month in the kitchen makes me the primary user, right?

We keep ours in the freezer! A chef in a cooking class once recommended this to me for extending their freshness. They’re all in little stackable plastic containers that I can wash and relabel as needed.

What kind of jars do you use to store the spices? Are they airtight? I am looking for glass jars to replace my plastic containers I use now and would love to know what kind you use and if you have suggestions for the brands?

Ha ha Renuka, that pretty much seals your position as head kitchen honcho!
Hi Cindy, I am most intrigued! Is that the whole spices or the powdered ones too?
Hi Hanna, I use little glass jars that are sold most economically in Ikea. The bigger ones are tradtionally kilner jars and they wash like a dream in the dishwasher. Does this help?

Useful tips, thank you! Kilner jars full of spices look so pretty too

Unquestionably believe that that you stated. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the web the
easiest factor to be mindful of. I say to you, I definitely get irked even as folks consider concerns that they plainly don’t realize about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as smartly
as defined out the entire thing without having side-effects
, folks can take a signal. Will probably be
again to get more. Thank you
