Spice it up

Spices. If you don't have them, you need them! You can't cook without spices, and if you think you can then you haven't lived! The problem is storage. How do you store a multitude of wondrous spices without taking up way too much room in the cupboard? Spice rack. Think they're ugly? Me too.

All things nice
I bought these little glass jars many many years ago at Rozelle Markets, and have supplemented the collection by scavenging more from a pharmacy that was getting rid of their old bottles. I simply bought swing-tag labels from the newsagent and tied them on. The colours of the spices are beautiful and they add a point of interest to an otherwise boring space under the window sill.

  1. I love this even more! The first thing I bought in Lithgow was spices and olive oil, but we have nowhere nice to put them. I can't say I *hate* spice racks, so I'll deal with that for a while, but I do love your solution much more. :)

  2. You could also use small preserve jars that are available cheaply from homewares stores, or there are some similar glass bottles available on eBay fairly regularly.
